The Origin Story
Aside from goldsmithing Jesper always loved fishing, hunting and the outdoors, which eventually drew him to Canada (where there was an awful lot more wilderness to explore)! Mountains, wildlife, hunting and fishing, what fun! After some years he was encouraged to set up an independent workshop in High River, Alberta, where he still works today.
