Cover Page for Birgit Kupke-Peyla - Studio Artist and Goldsmith


An ever changing collection...

Made one at a time.

No mass production.



Birgit Kupke-Peyla founded her central California-based
design studio in 2004.

Her designs have evolved
from modern German design
and are deeply rooted
in the European goldsmithing tradition.

My work is quiet yet dramatic, confident and delicate, complex in its apparent stillness and simplicity. I create precious one-of-a-kind and designer line pieces that harmonize with the human form with ease and elegance, expressing the wearer’s individuality."

Using a multitude of ancient and modern goldsmith techniques, most of my work is hand constructed, architectural with precise aesthetic.
In bold and strong, yet quiet forms I explore textures and pattern combinations. I follow my intuition. Utilizing a process of my own invention,
I carve into a laminated gold & silver sheet to reveal the silver. Thick sheet is rolled out until the layers are almost even. In the final pass
through the mill textures are introduced. Often a second layer of hammered gold strips adds complexity to the composition.
Other textures are developed by etching, imprinting with fabrics and handmade papers, embossing, hydraulic press forming and casting.
These sheets are cut, formed, fitted and soldered into a frame. Each piece is finished with dark patina.
Occasionally stones, chosen for their color, texture and pattern are used, but rarely become a focal point of the design.
