Taylor Starkman is the wild, curly-haired designer behind Cherry Rock Design.
In 2013, in search of more meaningful work outside of a longstanding corporate career, Taylor began designing her first pieces of jewelry as a much-needed creative outlet and a way for her to get hands-on with her work. As a self-taught artist with incredible attention to detail, she makes original pieces of jewelry from her White Bear Lake, Minnesota studio focusing on utilization of quality metals, colorful natural stones/minerals, and a variety of techniques.
In July, 2016 Cherry Rock Design was officially launched with an inspiration geared toward the urban boho and has garnered a loyal following in Minnesota and beyond. These days, Taylor is designing new pieces weekly for boutiques, shows, and her incredible customer base. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time outside or on the lake with her husband, 2 year old son, George, and yellow lab, Layla.
