Peter B. Wolff has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Northern Arizona University, with a minor in Business. Peter has been self-employed since graduating in May of 1983, when he started working as a bench jeweler performing repairs and creating custom jewelry.
He opened his own retail store in May 1996, selling finely handcrafted, one of a kind pieces as well as manufactured items such as chains and wedding bands. Peter became the first jeweler in Arizona to become a Certified Senior Bench Jeweler in November of 1998, and he started his website in 1999. For the last 27 years, Peter has honed his education and attended seminars to further his education. He is always striving to learn new techniques to create jewelry and to save time and money. He is a stickler for making sure that your jewelry repair or custom job is done right.
Pete's apprentice is Krystyna Jura and she was born right here in Flagstaff, Arizona.
From Krystyna; "I have two lovely daughters who I share my love of art with.
Art has always been something that I have treasured in my life. My love of creating beautiful things has touched into many media's but mainly charcoal and colored pencils with many drawings adorning my walls. The youth Pickard Art Award was one of my early accolades and I am looking forward to earning others.
My high school diploma was received with National Forensics League honors in 2004 at Sinagua High School. I have attended college courses through Coconino Community College in Fine Arts and feel at home here at Gold Wolff Jewelers.
Excitement fills my day with every new person I meet in beautiful Flagstaff, giving me the opportunity to bring the beauty in people's minds and hearts to life in the Jewelry they treasure. My design skills are yours to put to amazing effect here at Gold Wolff Jewelers and I can't wait to design a work of art for each of the wonderful people who walk through our doors. My heart is full of joy as I step into the bright future as an Apprentice Bench Jeweler."

Bryson Wolff is Pete's son, and is learning laser welding, and starting in the business part time right now.
