TAWNEY WEIR || LITTLE TORO DESIGNS
I am a metalsmith jewelry artist and fourth generation desert dweller based in Tucson, Arizona. My jewelry is handcrafted with quality sourced materials using smithing techniques in my little home studio. Soon I intend to include other decorative objects and housewares in my collection.
The harsh natural beauty of the Sonoran desert, together with the blend of Native American, Mexican, and cowboy cultures, form a unique place of color and vibrancy that sustains my imagination. There is no other place on earth like it and I feel lucky to live here. My goal is to take this inspiration and reinterpret traditional Southwestern design elements in a fresh and modern way - striving always for a desert chic aesthetic.
