Toronto native Eric Petersen has made quite a name for himself in the jewellery business. While attending classes at George Brown College, Petersen became fond of working with only the best materials and crafted jewellery that gathered attention. With artist precision and sticking to his instinct to work with precious metals and diamonds, Eric quickly has become one of Canada’s most promising jewellery designers. With several awards under his belt and a list of devoted customers, the young designer has set his sights on a promising new accessory venture: handbags.
His decision to create a line of high-end handbags has brought Eric around the globe for meetings with presidents and suppliers of the highest quality manufacturers that produce some of the most coveted bags on the market. His designs have created quite a stir with investors as well, with production scheduled to start in the next couple of months. With his background in jewellery and an eye for luxurious materials, we can only imagine the designer touches that could be brought to the bags hardware and handles.
The venture into handbags has its downside for fans of Eric’s custom jewellery. The designer is currently turning down clients as he puts his focus into his handbag collection. Check out a few photos of the designers work below, but we highly recommend you check out Eric Petersen’s new website to see more and be one of the first to know about this highly anticipated launch!
