Rough-Hewn fine jewelry
Rough-hewn, yet distinctively elegant, Sophie’s jewelry references a sense of European simplicity not unlike the Maine values that she grew up with. At once raw and refined, masculine and feminine, Sophie’s designs cut to the core – free of the frilly and superfluous, definitive but not defining.
Recently spotted on style icons Taylor Schilling, Rose Byrne, and Lucy Hale, Sophie’s 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 Bloomingdale’s in Chestnut Hill, MA. Recent press includes Foam Magazine, Elle China, and Brides.
HANDCRAFTED WITH INTEGRITY
Each piece is individually forged start-to-finish in Sophie’s studio using timeworn hammers, anvils, hand tools and torches. Sophie uses the highest quality recycled gold and silver, along with certified reclaimed or ethically sourced gems, for environmentally and socially responsible jewelry.
We make our jewelry with love–each piece is built to last and here to stay! We will repair damages due to original workmanship, under normal wear, at our discretion upon inspection. Please be in touch via email for assistance.
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. The twenty-seven year old designs for bold women after her own heart, who seek in their adornments a reflection of their unfaltering inner ferocity.
Sophie is an instinctive artist, driven by the push and pull, the malleability of raw metal as it surrenders beneath hammer blows. Her metals -recycled silver and gold- play muse to her custom commissions and limited-production collections for an intimate selection of shops in her home base of Boston, across the US and Europe.
