Peter Schmid Atelier Zobel


Peter Schmid first discovered his passion for jewelry on a trip to Konstanz while a student of economics in 1990. ‘I peered into the window of Zobel’s shop – and that was it, that’s what I want to do with my life.’ He returned to the shop three years later trained as a goldsmith and began his apprenticeship.  Eighteen years later, Peter Schmid is the designer and owner of Atelier Zobel.

Peter states, ‘I’m inspired by all the talent that surrounds me and the amazing people I meet every day.  So, I create jewelry to meet fantastic challenges and adventures of everyday life.  Life is beautiful, but it isn’t always easy.  My jewelry is about being beautiful and brave.  It is about stepping out and saying – ‘Hey World, here I am!’

The studio of Atelier Zobel creates one of a kind art jewelry inspired by love, passion and play between the jewel and the body. Working by the beautiful Lake Constance in Germany, designer Peter Schmid and his team of Master Goldsmiths craft unique works of wearable art ‘with the blood of our hearts’ and a passion for innovative design.

For more than 40 years, Atelier Zobel has stood as byword for highly individual, bold and emotive jewelry of timeless beauty.  The painterly quality of the surface textures, the free use of color, and the playful tension between strong geometric forms and sensual organic lines continues to inspire their collection.  The aim of the studio is to continue a tradition of jewelry-making, that is rich in masterful craftsman, not confined by tradition, but rather, courageously seeking new expressions for this art form.
