Tim’s start in jewelry began with him trying to make chainmail many years ago. He taught himself different weaves and progressed from cheap fence wire, to stainless steel, aluminum, and eventually silver.
A GIA Graduate Jeweler, Tim's expertise lies in lost wax casting. With a formal training in finishing and setting at the bench, he can visualize issues in casting early on to make adjustments and maintain a consistently precise casting process.
