Born in Ohio, Tim Terry found his talent for jewelry after studying Anthropology and traveling the world in the Peace Corps. He began with copper, but soon evolved his skill to silver and semi-precious stones. Much of Terry’s inspiration derived from a trip to California to study techniques of the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni Native Americans, influenced by heavy silver metals and enhanced design detail through the use of oxidizing agents. He is well known for his creative designs, which often incorporate the natural world with mythological creatures and figures, such as dragons, serpents and sea creatures. Tim now resides in Southern, Indiana with his talented wife, Ladi, who leads workshops in Bloomington.
