Peter Kosterich

From Peter Kosterich’s childhood, he has always been fixing, tinkering and modifying bikes, toys, and whatever he thought he could improve.  He was the neighborhood “fix it kid”.  This evolved over the years into a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Pratt Institute in New York, and his Handyman business of 31 years, Perau Associates in Columbia, Maryland.

While at Pratt Institute, many of Peter’s friends were Artists in various media, so while he was learning engineering, he was also learning design.    And yes, he continued modifying tools for both himself and his friends.

His knowledge of engineering skills coupled with a side education in design, and love of experimenting and modifying, led him to working with precious metals and making Jewelry.

Under the guidance of precious gem and precious metal artist Kevin White, Peter began his journey into a second profession, Jewelry Designer.

Peter’s work is generally abstract in nature as he continues to push the limits of his tools and materials.  All are completely original designs and completely handmade.  Most are %92.5 Sterling Silver and some include embedded cubic zirconia, or diamonds.  And some are Copper and Brass with various patinas. Peter creates his own texture plates for design embossing patterns.

Peter also collaborates with his wife Elizabeth Kosterich, also a Jewelry Artist, with a primary media of Professional Clay, to create unique designs incorporating both the precious metals and the clay. Peter and Beth live in Columbia, Maryland.
