Our designers are the heart of our shop. Customers who walk into Tucker's get to talk to the jeweler who will repair or create their jewelry. You will be greeted when you come in and be helped all the way through the excitement of buying, repairing or designing your perfect piece. The best way to meet them is in person but we're going to give it a try here:
Lee has more than 35 years of self-taught jewelry experience and has been with Tucker's for more than a decade. Lee started his journey as a jewelry designer and a silversmith more than three decades ago and since then has worked with all varieties of metals and stones. His favorite metal to work with is still silver. He is your guy if you have hard metals on which to be worked. He knows how to shape it, mold it, move it, shake it and whatever else you want it to do.
"I have been doing this for 35 years and still giggle when I do something that impresses me!"
Michael has been in the jewelry making business since 1996 and has been with Tucker's for about 2 years. He started his career with an apprenticeship in Springfield, Mo. Michael has had multiple award winning designs including a 2nd place finish in an international competition. He brings his award winning talent right here to mid-Missouri!
"I love working with the customers and working through the design process. Then seeing the glow on their faces when they see the finished product."
