Hand Crafted Jewellery
After living and working in several large cities, designer goldsmith Rudi Peet relocated to Canmore, Alberta, where he opened his current studio in 1993. “I cannot think of any place in the world where I would rather be,” says Rudi Peet. The designer whose curvaceous jewellery style tries to blend in with the human shape- describes his creative aesthetic as heavily inspired by Nature. “I see nature with its harmonies, seasons and sense of balance as my baseline and the grandmaster through which I get my inspiration.”


#10 – 102 Bow Meadows Crescent, Canmore
