Taran Marlow Jewelry was born from a surprise night school course that Taran took while working a corporate nine to five. Like many creative entrepreneurs, there was something missing from her corporate position but didn’t know it was a creative yearning.
Signing up for that silversmithing night course changed her life, and she found a passion she never knew she needed. Sometimes all it takes is a small uneasy step and, in taking that, Taran met Ruth of Metal Mud Studio and her new journey began.
Taran is from Grimsby, where she lives with her husband and the cutest black and white Boston terrier. You will find Taran most comfortable at her home studio, drawing out new designs or bending metal to wow us. She recommends checking out @richardahnert on Instagram; his work is quite inspirational.
What does a typical day look like for you?
It depends on the day.
A typical day for me starts in my studio. I turn on some music and open up my laptop and check my emails. After I'm all caught up with my emails, I start drawing and designing, or if I already have a design that I drew yesterday, then I will start to make that design. I will go back and forth between my jeweller's bench and soldering table until my design is complete or until I need a break. Sometimes I get on a roll and don't finish working until late at night and sometimes I'm not having the best day and nothing seems to be going well so I'll take breaks more frequently and stop sooner like at 5 pm.
That's pretty much a typical day for me.
What is the next step in your journey?
Oh gosh, I have a list a mile long posted up in my studio of next steps.
I guess for now I am currently working on some new jewelry designs that I literally can't wait to share.
What fires you up and gets you out of bed every day?
The unknown. It also fires me up knowing that I control my destiny
"If you were shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?"
A bikini and a snorkel
