Who We Are
With an early interest in art and design, Sophie would often be found painting her neighborhood flora as a child, the remnants of which still inspire her today. Sophie graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and lived in Europe before moving to New York City where she renewed her lost passion for art and design. Later on, her keen eye for classic architectural structures and Art Deco heavily influenced her jewelry design, which began at a Manhattan studio.
Sophie’s passion for jewelry design eventually culminated into her first collection, which launched at New York’s Henri Bendel. Sophie draws inspiration from every place and experiences, capturing timeless qualities into wearable art. Sophie was awarded with the Rising Star in Jewelry by Fashion Group International (FGI) DC in 2014.
Now based in Greater Washington DC, where she lives with her daughter Lumi, husband Dan, she owns a brick and mortar in Mosaic District, Virginia and has a modern and sophisticated ambiance with natural floors, high ceilings and an inviting, airy atmosphere. As the first retail location, the store houses the full collection alongside curated clothing and beauty merchandise by local women owned brands from DC, LA, New York and Europe.
“I know that jewelry is often said to be personal, but it’s so much more. It is an instant conversation starter, it breaks down walls, helps build connections and opens up hearts.
