Formerly of Los Altos, I purchased several beautiful pieces from Tim, and later Marilyn. My prized possession was Tim's "International Ring", named for the the International Jewelers' Award he won with this elegant and unusual ring. Last November I lost my ring. I can't stand to be without it. Today I searched the web and was disappointed to learn of the closing of the store. I will try to reach Marilyn, but in the meantime, does anyone know where the molds are located now?

I used to manage the Radio Shack around the corner from Gold Fever in Palo Alto. I fell in love with a beautiful sapphire and gold ring. I had to put it on law away, but went to visit it frequently, until it was paid off. I still wear it all the time. I also bought a cut out gold pendant, made by a friend of Tim's. I wanted a cutout of the logo of the Arabian Horse World Magazine, Arabians being my passion at the time. It is the size of a nickle and I wear it always. Lately my mother died and I inherited her and my father's wedding rings. I had them mounted in a horse shoe shaped frame, with the horse in its horse shoe frame hanging free inside it. It means I always have them close to me. The new pendant was designed by Gembrokers, in Santa Cruz, and they are truly wonderful people. I hope Ms Fidge appreciates how many of Tim's customers remember him and wear his work in his memory.

I purchased my wedding ring from Tim (in 1985). It was a unique design (sort of an angled wave pattern across the top and the ring tapered around the finger. I've worn it all these years, but lost it this past year while working outside. Just sick. I wanted to contact Tim and see if I could get another made. So Sorry to hear that TIm has passed away in 89 and that the store had closed in 2007 <sad>. Yes, I too, would like to see if the molds still exist and who has them. I'd buy another in a minute!
