THE HAZEN STORYA LOVE FOR DESIGN
Designer Taylor Miller discovered her love for jewelry design and creation at an early age.
After being introduced to the art at the age of nine, Taylor eagerly developed her own unique design style and dove into the design world after repurposing her grandmother’s costume jewelry as new creations. Within six months of beginning to make jewelry, she held her first trunk show at the acclaimed store Oxford Floral in Oxford, Mississippi and was named the Mississippi Museum of Art’s young artist of the year (2002).
For years, Taylor honed her skills on her bead-swathed bedroom floor,
creating nearly all of her collections entirely by hand. As the line has grown, Taylor continues to oversee the creative direction and material selection of the jewelry and has enlisted skilled assistants to help her produce her designs, always with the same attention to detail. Taylor frequently introduces new styles and each design is a limited run. Still today, every piece is made by hand and with much love in Texas.
“Made with love in the great state of Texas.”
A Houston native, Taylor is a graduate of Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business and currently resides in Dallas, Texas. Today, having sold tens of thousands of pieces of jewelry, Taylor continues to share her passion and creative flair with others through distinctive collections that make up the Hazen line.
