About
Tiro Tiro is a small line of jewelry and art objects designed by Teresa Robinson. Informed by traditional craft practices and 15 years of jewelry-making experience, we design enduring, covetable pieces for everyday use and enjoyment. We believe in the power of beautiful objects to inspire, delight and bring joy to the beholder, and aim to make work that does just that. 

Tiro comes from the latin word for a beginner or novice. Tiro Tiro embraces an era of experimentation and improvisation, drawing from our years of practice and honed expertise and then making things up as we go. Evolving and exploring new mediums and techniques, we allow the materials to guide us, finding that some of our best work happens by accident. In addition to jewelry, we look forward to offering limited runs of small sculptural works and complementary wares.

Teresa Robinson is the child of two artists and a native of the Pacific Northwest. When she was 20 years old and studying fine art at Hampshire College, she spent 6 months in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There, she took a jewelry class on a whim and fell in love with metalsmithing. She has launched 3 successful jewelry lines over the past fifteen years (Smallthings in 2001, Stone & Honey in 2008 and Tiro Tiro in 2013). She lives in a little red house in Portland, Oregon with her dog, Marcelle, and shares the backyard with 4 precocious chickens.
