Contemporary classic designs have been at the heart of Mary Timmer’s Jewelry since she began metalsmithing in 1996. After a three year apprenticeship to a well-recognized jewelry gallery in her hometown of Chapel Hill, NC, she forged ahead building her technical knowledge and proficiency through additional education and production work for other distinguished jewelers in the Asheville area. Mary established Timmer Designs in 2002. Her growing artistry of design and gifted craftsmanship has since earned her the Award of Excellence for increased sales and good customer service in 2004 and 2005 from the Grovewood Gallery.
With a focus on jewelry as art, Mary’s work combines artistic designs with an extraordinary high degree of technical skill. Using sterling with gold overtones for the basis of most production pieces, she adds the exquisite luster and color of pearls and the shimmer of precious stones to achieve a look of simple elegance. Classic designs that stay in style. Graceful lines and fluid shapes.
Mary received a BFA in Art Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and continued her technical education with classes at Penland School of Crafts and a specialists’ degree in Professional Crafts Jewelry from Haywood Community College near Asheville. In 2003, she was accepted as a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, an honor she values as recognition of her artistry.
