The Penny

In December of 2004, Tim used a construction hammer, a Leatherman, a smooth river rock and a penny to create this handmade necklace. Tim spent the next year studying sculpture and sterling silver jewelry design, with particular interest in organic textures. In February, 2006 he left his full time career at a major record company, and on the same day launched Pennyroyal with the release of his first collection of original sterling silver creations known now as “The Original 7”.

The Original 7

This inaugural collection of 7 designs was created during 2005 at a make-shift coffee table workshop in Tim’s Minneapolis apartment as the first incarnation of Pennyroyal took shape. The collection was inspired by Tim’s previous career in the music industry and they became known as “The Original 7”.
