About Sophie hughes
A fearless world traveler with roots in coastal Maine, Sophie has been known to dash off to Paris, Rome or Istanbul when the mood strikes, absorbing inspiration along the road.
Sophie is an instinctive artist, driven by the push and pull, the malleability of raw metal as it surrenders beneath her hammer blows. Her metals — recycled silver and gold — play muse to her custom commissions, unique pieces, and limited-production collections for an intimate selection of shops and galleries in her home base of Boston, across the US and Europe.
The twenty-six year old designs for bold women after her own heart, who seek in their adornments a reflection of their confidence and unfaltering ferocity.
About the Line
Rough-hewn, crudely formed, yet defiantly elegant, the jewelry references a sense of European simplicity not unlike the Maine values that Sophie grew up with. The line’s trademark matte, textured finish lends nuance to understated designs, for pieces that are effortless and widely versatile, and will never go unnoticed.
At once raw and refined, masculine and feminine, Sophie’s jewelry represents the core skeleton of design – free of the frilly and superfluous, definitive but not defining.
Each piece is individually and meticulously crafted using a hammer and anvil. Sophie uses the highest quality reclaimed sterling and gold to minimize new mining, for eco-conscious jewelry.
Recently spotted on style icons Rose Byrne and Lucy Hale, Sophie Hughes Jewelry has walked the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York as part of Emerson’s SS13 show, and in Spring 2013 was featured in Bloomingdales in Chestnut Hill, MA. Recent press includes Foam Magazine and Elle China.
