Portland-based Tiro Tiro’s golden talismans are the creative genius of Teresa Robinson. They are like modern ceremonial embellishments with their graphic metal form and rough linen fringing.
Curvaceous shapes with finely pocked surfaces that create a dull lustred patina, are in sharp contrast with their feathered miniature manes. The necklaces; ‘Cercis’, ‘Campana’, ‘Iridis’ and ‘Sol’ hang ceremoniously from long snake chains. Modest and robust, the bangles resemble crowns and the fine rings of golden fat discs complete the story. The collection feels part Aztec part regimental regalia.
Tiro is latin for beginner or novice, in this case relating not to the negative connotations, but rather the experiment and improvisation that comes with a new creative mindset.
