Petra Class Studio is a small team of skilled jewelers spanning 2 familial generations. The work is made of 22k and 18k recycled gold and precious gemstones, designed to emphasize color, texture, and the playful combinations of cut and rough stones. The studio uses age-old techniques of gold smithing and hand forging, stretching the boundaries of conventional jewelry design. Originally trained as a silversmith in Germany and having spent several years constructing tableware, Petra’s approach to jewelry making has been informed foremost by the European tradition of applied art. The intention is to make work that seduces and attracts the eye; pieces that fulfill the ancient human need for adornment, using precious materials to invoke the eternal awe for the beauty nature brings forth.
