The Brilliance of Fine Jewellery
If the worth of an object can be measured by the enthusiasm of its creator, then the jewellery of Peter Jost is very valuable indeed.
Peter is one of Canada's few Master Goldsmiths, a skill that is honoured in Europe. "To me goldsmithing is the most wonderful profession in the world. I can be creative with my mind, use the talents of my hands, and deal with the most exciting minerals, materials and metals that earth can give", says Peter.
The Goldschmiede Studio's mahogany and brass displays glitter with the objects of his passion. A well-designed piece of jewellery must be endowed with not only precious gems and metals, but with the art of craftsmanship. Peter puts all these qualities into every piece he creates, always working within the client's budget. From a classic engagement ring to a work of art which might take months to design, each receives his full attention.
Peter receives many compliments for his creations. An overjoyed bride took the time to write: "I don't know what is more spectacular the view from the Eiffel Tower at night where my husband proposed, or the ring you made. It's fabulous." Says the humble Peter, "I would have thought they had other things to do than think about the goldsmith!"
