Timmy specializes in making all types of jewelry. He turns raw silver into fabulous earrings, necklaces, pendants, bolo ties, concho belts, bracelets, and rings. He uses a wide variety of stones on his jewelry. Timmy draws designs on his raw silver freehand, cuts his design out with a coping saw, sauters top plate to the bottom plate, oxidizes, cuts stones out manually, shapes stones and polishes his finished piece. He signs his jewelry as: TY with the Y beneath the letter T.
