Living life in the fast lane...slowly.
A formally trained goldsmith and graduate of Jewellery Arts, School of Fashion Studies at George Brown College, Eric Petersen is the Lead Designer and CEO of ERIC PETERSEN, an exclusive designer brand specializing in fine jewellery and accessories.
Born and raised in Scarborough, located in Toronto, Canada, he is an award winning designer-jeweller, inspired by world travels, culture and quotes.
In 2018, he helped introduce Gucci Décor, a collection of furniture and decorative pieces, to the Canadian market.
His first time flying on a plane was from Toronto to Melbourne, Australia, he rode a camel to the ATM in Pushkar, India and he has lived and worked in Florence, Italy.
With skateboarding being his first true love, Petersen is a voracious reader, vintage wine lover and an always curious ‘cat dad.’
He currently splits his time between Toronto, Canada and Toulouse, France.
“Just because you’re from the wrong side of the tracks, doesn’t mean you have to act that way.”
