It all began in the city where they fell in love, Los Angeles, when Tarina Tarantino and Alfonso Campos set out to create a brand that focused on unique design and premium quality craftsmanship. What started in 1995 with some sketches, beads, inspiration and determination in a tiny apartment, is now a vibrant jewelry factory located in the heart of the Historic Broadway District. Over the years, TARINA TARANTINO has been seen as a pioneer not only in approach to design, and her many collaborations with iconic brands such as Sephora, Mattel, Sanrio, Warner Bros., Paul Mitchell and more, but also for a commitment to manufacturing here in the U.S.A.
"Having our own factory provides us the freedom and flexibility to design and create anything we can dream up season after season. It gives us the ability to get our collections to market faster and, most importantly, makes it possible for us to oversee the quality and care of our manufacturing process every step of the way." -Tarina
While many fashion manufacturers have been forced to close or move manufacturing overseas during the recession, TARINA TARANTINO has fought through the challenges to continue making their products right here in the U.S.A.
"We believe that what we make is more than beautiful hand crafted jewelry and accessories, it's a connection to the roots that made this country so great; its people and community are in every part of every piece in our collections." -AlfonsoNone of this would be possible without the support of our amazing customers worldwide, and their continued commitment and LOVE for TARINA TARANTINO. All of us here at The TT Sparkle Factory thank you for choosing our pieces and making us part of your sparkling world everyday.
