Artist Statement

I’m Sonja and thank you for visiting my site.

I grew up in a small German town where my family ran a jewellery business. I vividly remember creating all sorts of weird and beautiful metal objects in my father’s and grandfather’s workshops from a young age. After moving to London and graduating from university there I enjoyed a successful career in the events industry, but it wasn’t to be my calling in life – and I found I missed this creative outlet.

Becoming a mum also gave me the courage to turn my fascination for working with metal and fire into a new career path. So, I attended numerous jewellery courses, acquired traditional jewellery-making skills, and did lots of experimenting in my workshop at home – and I’m now extremely proud to have grown my original passion into my own small independent business.

I make high quality, contemporary and unique silver jewellery and often use pearls and gold as embellishments. All my pieces are original and handmade by me in my South London studio with a real enthusiasm for making beautiful, and – most importantly – wearable jewellery. My inspiration comes both from living in a big, bustling city, but also, contrastingly, from the simple beauty of nature. I’m drawn to clean lines and simple shapes and these are often reflected in my jewellery.

I want to share my passion for jewellery with like-minded individuals and hope that they will enjoy wearing my timeless jewellery collection as much as do in designing and making each piece. It gives me great pleasure to create something with my own hands that others value, wear and treasure.

Each item of my jewellery is made to your order, making it truly unique to you. I will consult with you and incorporate your wishes and ideas to ensure it really is something that you, or your loved one, treasures forever.
