GENIE SOUL DESIGNS

Handcrafted, unique and timeless. Established in 1997, these ideals have guided the Genie Soul line of jewelry by Tara Carignan. The name “Genie Soul” was derived from the Walker Percy novel, “The Moviegoer”, a favorite of Tara’s. Percy uses the term to describe the sensations he experienced from the sights, sounds and smells of Chicago and New Orleans. We love that it reminds us to pay attention to all that is around us everyday, and especially when travelling. Tara started making jewelry as an artistic outlet while battling a baffling illness that completely changed her life. She was forced to let go of the luxuries provided by a corporate job and embrace simpler, healthier life choices. One of which was giving back to the community. While doing volunteer work with HIV positive men and women she met Lou and Sally, two beautiful and uplifting souls that put her work in their art shows. Thus began this journey. As the business grew Tara studied for three years with a master jeweler in Atlanta to hone her skills. Inspiration for the line comes from music, literature, art and especially travel. That particular passion, along with scuba diving, gives Tara the mental space to create fresh and authentic designs instead of simply mimicking mainstream fashion. Trips to Vietnam, Cambodia and Africa have been life changing. The lifestyles, nature, smells, and scenic images of each place – the journey – is what inspires… that is the “genie-soul”. Our gift to you is the passion and detail that goes into each piece of jewelry. Artisan jewelry sadly seems to be a dying art and is so special to us because of the meticulous, handcrafted nature of each and every piece. Having sold mainly through boutiques and juried shows, we have now decided to branch out and spread our inspiration by launching an online presence. Tara’s work has been featured on television and in various magazines including Jezebel and Real Simple. She lives in Atlanta with her husband Robert and their Jack Russell Terriers: Kozmo, Zoe and Nomar.

MARGARET SNIDER

I’ve always had a love for art. I’ve been told I get my artistic ability from my Grandma on my Dad’s side of the family, and for that I’m eternally grateful. I’ve also been told I see the world through rose colored glasses. At the time, I think it was meant as an insult but I take it as a pretty big compliment. Who wouldn’t want to be known as optimistic and cheerful? In fact, I think my positivity shows in my work and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I dabbled in numerous mediums through my teen years and found a love for batik and charcoal portraits towards the end of my high school experience but it wasn’t until the moment I picked up a paintbrush and acrylics that I truly found my happy place in the art world. I have no formal training with painting (unless you count high school art classes). I simply learn from trial and error. I enjoy the newness of techniques not yet tried and mediums yet to be used. I’m continuously evolving and always searching for my voice as an artist.

 

BSQUARED DESIGNS

Cindy’s love for jewelry was inspired by her Great Aunt Estelle, who was a buyer for Rich’s Department Store, and her mother, a runway model. They would allow her to play dress-up with the accessories, and Cindy grew to love the feeling of dressing up with the beautiful gems. Years later, she wandered into a jewelry store to get a necklace fixed; little did she know this would rekindle her love for accessories. She started by making bracelets and selling them at ALTA tennis matches. As word spread quickly, Bsquared designs blossomed into creating intricate necklaces, and of course, her celebrated “wrap bracelets”.
