In Ancient Cultures, animals were the most important symbolic element in the worldview of hunter-gathering people.  It is likely that the depictions of animals and their inclusion within ritual represented an attempt by these ancient people to interact with and to control the natural and supernatural world, as a means to make sense of our human world.  Many of the animal images carried messages, telling the stories of myth and heroic deeds from oral traditions now forgotten.

TARU Jewelry strives to capture and maintain the stories of our ancestors by interweaving symbolism and myth.  Each piece is carefully and thoughtfully handcrafted in silver and 18 karat gold with precious stones to preserve ancienttradition and to creatively celebrate the connection of the human and animal worlds.
