Petra has been an innovator in the jewelry design world for the past 30 years and is the driving force behind the studio. Her classical training in Europe combines with the colorful creativity of California living. Petra bosses everybody around when she isn’t immersed in benchwork, drawing, traveling, aikido or hoping to finally learn how to surf and/or play the cello.

Siedra has been working as studio manager, metalsmith and designer for the studio since 2014. After studying metalsmithing at Earlham College in the midwest, she moved to New York City to work as a bench jeweler. Originally from Vermont, Siedra finds herself at home in the foggy Bay Area. When she isn’t fabricating jewelry she loves hosting dinner parties, adventuring around California, gardening and honing her skills as a Volvo mechanic.

Morgan is one of the metalsmiths and designers for the studio. She grew up on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She studied Photography and Metals at the University of Redlands. Morgan moved to San Francisco in 2014 and has been working for Petra since. She loves croquet, cooking, camping, concerts, coats and chips! 

Liz is our operations manager and in house photographer. She grew up in Wappingers Falls, a small town in the Hudson River Valley. Liz attended Rhode Island School of design and received a BFA in photography. She moved from Boston to California in 2015. She lives in Oakland and spends her free time cooking, watching/reading sci-fi and hiking with the world’s best dog, Pierogi.
