Owner and Goldsmith
Tim Wright is a goldsmith with over 25 years of experience in traditional jewelry design. Wright is graduate of Bethel High School growing up in the Tidewater area of Virginia and developed a passion for collecting stones. He took on an apprenticeship with a master goldsmith to pursue his interest in stones and put his old collection to use. Though he was also working as a chef at the time, his apprenticeship solidified his passion for jewelry and his life changed course. He continued working at several different local jewelry stores until he met Alex Maryaskin who shared the same ethical integrity and artistic aim for perfection. The two started a friendship and after 10 years they were able to open Simply Unique Jewelry Designs together.
Wright's designs are often very traditional and his specialties include complicated stone setting and re-fabrication of inherited jewelry pieces. He has a passion for antique jewelry and old watches.
