"And the seasons they go 'round and 'round / And the painted ponies go up and down / We're captive on the carousel of time / We can't return we can only look behind / From where we came / And go round and round and round / In the circle game"
So goes the chorus of Joni Mitchell's "The Circle Game," and for jewelry designer Tamar Wider, there couldn't have been a more striking song to fit with her latest collection for The 2 Bandits. "It is
inspired by the circle/cycles of life.
Most of the shapes are literal, including circles and half circles," she explains.But for the Texas native, it wasn't just the folk singer who influenced her design process; it was her roots: "I'm all about Texas glam so I went big, not home!" That translates to big hoops, onyx stones, and more than a few statement pieces.
