/ A collection of the most beautiful and brilliant brooches

/ Artisanship at its best

/ Inspiring book for jewelry lovers

In no way does the gold- and silversmith Peter Müller live up to any of the modern clichés about jewelry designers. Rather, his pieces of jewelry are the expression of the highest level of artisanry. In dealing with precious materials, perfection is his standard. This perfection is found in all of his designs and finished pieces, whether it’s a sculptural silver armband, a brooch set with precious stones, or a simple, classic ring. He’s a master of his subject. His skill is valued not only by jewelry lovers, but by his fellow artists and artisans. For instance, Müller was a good friend of Jörg Immendorff’s and realized his creative jewelry designs. This fruitful collaboration has resulted in unique pieces of jewelry.

Throughout his life Peter Müller has designed and made brooches. Photographed by Thomas Dashuber and accompanied by an essay by Father Friedhelm Mennekes of the Society of Jesuits, a series of fifty-eight select brooches made between 1968 and 2017 is presented in this bibliophile’s edition.

Peter Müller (*1942) is a renowned German gold- and silversmith. After a classic education in gold- and silversmithing (1965-68), he studied goldsmithing from 1968 to 1974 under Franz Rickert and Hermann Jünger at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. Müller lives in Munich. His jewelry has been seen in a variety of exhibitions, including a number of group exhibitions with the silversmith Peter Verburg at the Galerie Fred Jahn, Munich, and at the Kunsthaus Lempertz, Cologne, Berlin, and Brussels.
