About Jewelry by Tim & Friends:
Greetings! The path to Jewelry by Tim & Friends is over 40 years long, starting with the gift of a rock tumbler for my 9th birthday! My Dad and I tumbled and polished rocks for the prescribed 6 weeks and then made Christmas gifts with them for family members! The next step in the journey occurred in 1990, when I applied for a sales position with J.R. Dunn Jewelers in South Weymouth, Ma where I was also working full time as a Navy weather forecaster (Aerographers mate). The bench jeweler and I quickly became friends and remain to this day in regular contact. When he asked me to do a task, I was able to accomplish it without too many mistakes and he continued to mentor me! Step forward to when my son was 2 years old, and the Navy wanted me to go onto an aircraft carrier for 6 years!!! We left the Navy, and opted to raise a family here in the Mount Washington Valley, opening first on Reporters Ct. as C & T Crafters in spring of 1996.
