My name is Tamara Bavdek. I graduated from University of Montreal in Industrial Design in 2007. I am addicted to design in all of its forms and I have a natural urge to create things. I am inspired by everything.

After many, many years of long blond hair, I needed a change. After finally getting a short haircut, I started seeking large earrings to compliment and feminize my look.

My first pair of lace earrings was created in 2006 while I was in Australia and since then, they caught the attention of the people around me. First I created a few for friends, then boutiques, got my own Etsy shop, was featured in magazine spreads & articles, won a couple of prizes, accessorized fashion shows...and am slowly conquering the world (I wish!)

I hope you like it! And do pop by for updates... Jewelry is currently my thing but I may be designing anything in the future...

By the way, the word Ilk means "of the same class or kind" which I associate with anyone who has similar taste or interests.
