Atelier Zobel is the brainchild of Peter Schmid. Peter is often referred to as a ‘stone whisperer’. He sees it as central to his craft to know gemstones intimately, as individual personalities. Peter takes time to carefully set the stones in ways that intensify their sparkle, brilliance and luminous colors, or highlight their specific structure. Every stone and every piece has its own distinct story. Peter's major source of my inspiration is found in natural structures and growth patterns. It is this curiosity that attracts him to a specific stone, to explore the juxtaposition between color combinations or between two unusual objects, then uncover a feeling, an encounter, a story, and draw it into a single object. Exclusively available in Boulder at Art + Soul.
