Meet Peter...

I was born and raised in Kosta Boda, Sweden.  Kosta Boda is famous for its crystal factory. Sweden is famous for soccer.  My nickname was "Kosta", and I played soccer and worked in the crystal factory with my family. I played for one of Sweden's best teams at the time & Kosta-Boda became my sponsor when I moved from a 5th division team to a top division team at age 17. I spent a lot of time in the Kosta-Boda Crystal factory & learned a great deal in all aspects of crystal making.

I came to the United States in 1979 to play professional soccer for the San Diego Soccers .  While working thru challenges with a Visa, I ended up at the University of Tampa  playing soccer and winning the national championship in 1981.  This is also where I met my wife of 31 years.  I was drafted to the Witchita Wings going as #2 in first round, and ended up playing with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.   After soccer, my business choice was simple.   I used my knowledge of crystal to design, create, and import crystal to the USA.  Back then I hand cut lead crystal in my garage and sold it to gift shops and country clubs.  The crystal business fit nicely with my soccer background since I was used to traveling the world to play soccer and now I could travel to find the finest crystal products at the best prices.  I have connections with crystal factories in Sweden, Poland, and Romania.  My current studio is in China.  I have taken the knowledge I have from my family that has worked in the crystal factory for generations and I have trained my own people in China to produce crystal products following my high standard of quality and perfection.

Just checking your website and wanted to see if this email works. I received an email from you as part of a mass email you sent out and was just wondering how you are doing. Hope all is well.
