Beatrice Matiash

Designer Beatrice Matiash is motivated by unconventional sources of inspiration. "I am in part a collector," she said. "Everywhere I go, I feel drawn to the color combination on anything from a flyer to a tea set, and to the history of things like a twig or a penny. I collect all these things that influence my jewelry designs." She fondly recalls collecting pennies as a child and immediately checking the year so she could dream up a story about the owner who dropped it.
While managing a trend-driven jewelry boutique and apprenticing for the head designer, Beatrice earned her B.A. in Fashion Buying and Merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She then joined the Federated Merchandising Group in product development for accessories and simultaneously began to develop her own jewelry design craft. Moving to DKNY as merchandise manager for handbags, she gained insight into the accessories business essential to starting her own company.
In the spring of 2000, Beatrice launched Tashka by Beatrice with a small collection sold in local neighborhood boutiques. Her offerings now include five jewelry groups available nationwide. collection

      The cufflinks are unusual and very attractive. You don't find these at the store. Really great idea. My husband was thrilled with them and so I was very happy. One reviewer thought they were too shiny but we didn't think so. Really happy I bought them.

        This was a 7th anniversary gift for my husband. I wanted something unique for our 'copper'anniversary. I had one cufflink personalized with the year we were married and the other with this year ( 7th anniversary). They came out really nice and were VERY shiny! He's received multiple compliments on them. Nice gift :)

          I gave this as a baptism gift for my godson and the parents loved it.

          I think that for the quality of the gift and the cost, the packaging was rather cheap. A nicer box would really improve the presentation. I was tempted to re-box it, but the artist's name is on the box and I didn't want to take this away.

          Delivery was actually quicker than predicted.

                      A penny saved is a penny earned, but two pennies on your cuffs are extremely stylish. Would you love to wear your birth year in gold? What about the date you and your sweetie met in copper? Which year combinations do you think make the most cents?

                      Nifty idea, but high price. Is a large portion of that the cost of sterling cufflinks themselves?

                      would be a nice gift but not at that price, would never invest that much unless my name was 'penny' and the guy i liked wanted coin jewelry

                      $156 for two pennies mounted in sterling silver? That is frankly ridiculous. I know people put time and effort into their work but the price is far too high. I would never by these for any man I know.

                      Too expensive. And unless it used pennies that were of special significance to the wearer, I can't see this as something I would buy as a gift.

                      Almost 200 DOLLARS for two cents.... Think about it.

                      Way too expensive - i've seen similar cufflinks with ancient roman coins priced the same, or a little cheaper.
