ABOUT RINA TAIRO
Finnish designer Rina Tairo finds her influence from nature and textiles, as well as from the vast creative possibilities the materials she works with provide.
Since launching her debut artisan collection to great acclaim in the late 1980s from Australia, she has become internationally renowned for her exquisite woven gold and fine jewellery.
Rina's designs are handcrafted by her small team in the UK where she has been based for the last twenty years. Combining textile methods and ancient goldsmithing techniques they transform carefully selected fine materials into distinctive wearable pieces of art.
Rina Tairo Jewellery has been sold worldwide by some of the most exclusive retailers, including stores such as Liberty London, Harrods and Barneys New York, and exhibited at galleries such as Sotheby's and the V&A.
Early in her career Rina designed collections for well known fashion houses such as Suzanne Harward, Whistles and Paul Smith Woman. During this time she also designed Bespoke pieces for TV and Film, her work appearing in many blockbusters such as Emma, Sleepy Hollow and Love Actually.
Since 1995 Rina has been based in the south coast of England where she has had her Brighton retail boutique since 2004.
Recently Rina has opened her latest London boutique in central Soho during early 2019.
