Enameled Dot Earrings by Little Toro Designs
These enameled sterling silver earrings provide a pretty pop of color! Wholly handmade by Tawney of Little Toro Designs here in Tucson, sterling silver disks are coated in a colorful kiln-fired glass enamel to create these beauties, the same enamel she uses in her copper creations (like those seen here) used to very different effect.
Earrings measure approx. 1/2" diameter.
Sterling silver with kiln-fired glass enamel.

Tucson artist Tawney Weir of Little Toro Designs dabbles in many mediums and crafts, but metal smithing is her true passion. Inspired by the minutiae of nature, the shape of nesting birds, the texture of reptile skin, the shadows of a palm frond, Tawney creates striking jewelry and decoration with natural geometric shapes, and bright bold colors. The hallmark hues and forms of Little Toro Designs are entirely handcrafted using only quality sourced materials and traditional smithing techniques at Tawney’s home studio. While she works with many metals, including bronze and sterling silver, her most iconic and plentiful creations are carefully crafted copper plates, covered with a colorful coat of elegant enamel.
