Talyer means workshop in English, conjuring images of a busy craftsman working on his creation. Rightly so, Talyer Jewelry is about crafting pieces – pounding away and molding metals, clay, or precious gems to create beauty that one can wear, and keep as an expression of one’s individuality.

Its owner and designer, Dara Siguion-Reyna Villonco comes from a family whose name is identified with the arts. According to her bio, she gets inspiration from her travels, the cityscape, and unique patterns. From her bead-loving youth spawned her love for creating jewelry that has become a business. Her creative venture now enjoys loyal patrons who love her niche – avant-garde elegance with a down-to-earth vibe. She describes her jewelry creations as eclectic, each piece bearing her love of fineness and whimsicality, and the things she’s fascinated with. Pieces she creates for a specific person reflect the quirkiness of that customer, making it an extension of the soul, and the tangible voice of a character. Almost like a breathing, living entity that speaks forth beauty in all its rawness and perfect imperfection – real, unpretentious, artistically boundless.
