Meet the Designer
Leaving corporate America behind, native Texan, Mirta Tummino realized her true calling when she began designing jewelry. With an eye for color and texture, she has created one-of-a-kind pieces that her growing clientele love to collect.
All designs are handcrafted using 18k gold, sterling silver, precious and semi-precious gemstones, reflecting Mirta’s delicate design aesthetic.
Mirta started by studying metalsmithing and jewelry design at Lill Street Art Center in Chicago. As she refined her skills, Mirta embraced her artistic abilities and created a unique line of earrings, necklaces and bracelets that can be worked together or layered for a more textured look. Her combined training in both jewelry making and the business world has led her to become well-versed in designs that women want to wear. She left her selling career in the Fortune 500 sector to pursue her passion— designing and marketing her jewelry.
She enjoyed much success in many popular boutiques in the Chicago area before relocating back to her hometown of Houston, Texas where she now resides with her husband Frank and lovely daughter, Ava.
Mirta has become a true master of her craft, creating a line of jewelry that gives women what they want— a variety of accessories for any occasion, from career to weekend. From stylish staple pieces for everyday, to colorful layered gems that complete a cocktail outfit, Mirta Tummino Studio keeps clients clamoring for more.
