Both brass and silver will oxidize and take on a darker patina with time, and as such, all orders ship with a small jewelry polishing cloth to brighten things up as needed. Store your jewelry in a dry place, clean with a mild soap and water as necessary, and shine up with the included polishing cloth.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Informed by traditional craft practices and almost 20 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.
