Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, surrounded by her extended Italian family she experienced the diversity of NYC neighborhoods and cultures. Tana has nurtured a passion for the arts while working in human services and raising a family. She now resides in Savannah Georgia where she continues to hone her artistic skills contributing to the art community and creating unique jewelry pieces.
Drawing from who I am and the diversity of my experience I aspire to develop interesting wearable pieces of jewelry through the seamless incorporation of various media that combine to speak to the viewer “as one”. An expression of colors, movement, texture and shape achieved through the use of beads, metals, glass, and fabric give life to my pieces. Wire wrapped bracelets, earrings and pendants, bead embroidered collars, beaded and wire worked earrings, bracelets and pendants are among my creations.
