When he made his decision to become a goldsmith, Martin studied for five years under Master Goldsmith Jurgen Schonheit in his internationally famous atelier shop on Granville Island, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The inspiration for my company name, Czech Alchemist Goldsmithing, is from my Czech ancestral heritage and the story of alchemy at the Prague Castle’s Golden Lane.
Alchemists were a clan of gold refiners that guarded their secrets by clouding the truth with mysticism. Since the 1950's My relatives several generational studio is now a museum, with souvenir shops and exhibitions.
