Peter Schmid of Atelier Zobel creates dramatic, modern jewelry in precious gems and metals, recognized worldwide for their unique aesthetic. ¬†On one level, his jewelry functions as pure sculpture, where scale is crucial to the viewer; and on another level, the theatricality and extravagance of each piece serves to draw attention and commendations to the wearer. There’s a great sense of fun in Schmid’s play with scale and size; an enjoyment of color and pattern for its own sake and a true pleasure in jewelry as ornament.

Peter Schmid studied goldsmithing at the School for Design and Jewelry in Schwabisch-Gmund, Germany, and then apprenticed to his famed mentor Michael Zobel, who founded the Atelier in 1970. Schmid’s work is in the Museum of Art and Design New York and Museum of Fine Arts Boston as well as many private collections.
