Tabra Tunoa

Internationally known artist, Tabra Tunoa, a leader in the Contemporary Ethnic style of Gypsy Jewelry, studied Mayan and Aztec art at the University of Mexico City and San Jose, Costa Rica as well as jewelry design at the Masana Art Institute in Barcelona, Spain in the 60's and 70's. In 1973, Tabra returned to the United States where she began her design career selling her home made jewelry on the streets of Berkeley, California.

As the demand for her jewelry outgrew her capacity to produce it, she began to train young refugees from Asia and Central America to help in her workshop just north of San Francisco.

Tabra continues to design jewelry today with as much enthusiasm as she did on the street so many years ago. She says she has no intentions or interest in ever retiring. Designing jewelry and helping women of the Third World will be her passions forever.

All bracelets are formed by a sterling silver connector bracelet (band) locked together by a sterling and precious stone charm.
