Miami girl Tiffany Dominguez started making jewelry long before she launched Taudrey in July 2009. The name derives from her favorite movie icon, Audrey Hepburn, and the designer’s first initial. Soon after she started making her fun and sassy pieces in her living room while drinking wine with friends, people started wanting to buy them. Today, her pieces attract clients ages 5-105 — and there’s something for everyone. Each piece is hand-stamped by Dominguez in her Coral Gables studio, which she lovingly refers to as “the jewelry box.” She, along with her trusty companion, Zoe, The French Bulldog, has taken the line from bracelets to necklaces, cufflinks, flatware and more. What makes these pieces so special is that each and every one is unique to the customer. They serve as gifts, as a pretty way to remember a special person or occasion, or just a nice way to share the things you love most with the world. Currently, the brand works mostly via e-commerce and will ship around the country, but you can also stop in for a visit with Tiffany and Zoe to see what new treasures are in the works; Taudrey.com.
Beyond its colorful interiors and exteriors, vibrant entertainment lineup and authentic Mexican cuisine, Pilo’s aims to be the largest employer of individuals with special abilities.
