He's best known for a line of men's jewelry that features hand-cast chains, designer belts, and sunken treasure coins.

About Timothy Meier: "I started as a Ceramic and metal sculptor, and then found my calling. It was an epiphany of sorts. I was making jewelry for myself, and the reviews from peers and strangers were positive to say the least. There has not been a day since I started designing and wearing my own oxidized silver necklace that I havent been asked; Where did you get that necklace? It happens to my clients on a daily basis as well, and word continues to spread. This gets me out of bed in the morning."
It was an amazing art teacher named Karl Rowe who made me realize that gifts are meant to be used and not squandered. He said, If you dont go to art school, youre an idiot. Thanks Rau! My first true education in jewelry was at the University of Michigan under the direction of a wild man by the name of David Cruz. Two weeks in to the class he said, If you dont do this forever, youre an idiot. Im not sure if its masochism, but I listened to him. Thanks David!"
