clockwork punk by tarina tarantino

Very few people know her by her designer name, but many have seen her Hello Kitty rhinestoned jewelry creations at mall stores and modeled by Jeffrey Star.  Her name is Tarina Tarantino and her world is covered in bows, rhinestones, and cute yet creepy jewelry and hair accessories.  There are many imitators, but only one Tarina Tarantino.

Her newest collection, Clockwork Punk, really caught my attention.  This collection is steampunk influenced, but it also infuses kitsch with the mechanical structure that is often seen in this style trend.  Tarina’s designs have really brought a different spin to the style by incorporating gears into the decorative aspect of the jewelry.  The use of gold and silver color combinations evoke a very rich and antique feel, but still keep the designs current, fashionable, and easy to wear.

The pieces that really make my old timey heart skip a beat are the Extra-Large Bow Anywhere Clip, the Collage Pendant Necklace, and the Lock and Key Ring.

Tarina Tarantino set out to make pieces that are a steampunk take on the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz and I think that she succeeded!  Check out the site, clickity click on the cute “tin girl” model and enjoy your steamy little hearts out.

  1. I love the necklace and the ring that’s on the site! I also really want that outfit, haha… leather shrug, gaunlets, chainmail dress, gold lame leggings, and thigh high leather boots all glitzed and glammed out!
