Barking Hen Jewellery
Tamara, a jeweller and designer for over 25 years, hand makes her jewellery from a little studio in the back garden of her home in Chippenham. Using established traditional silversmith techniques partnered with a flair for the unusual, Tamara’s pieces have a delightfully quirky, British sense of style. Tamara also teaches workshops and when these were cancelled during lockdown 2020 she designed a bracelet making postal kit which kept the nation's creative juices flowing!
