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.
