Sofia’s professional jewelry career began with a friendship bracelet factory in elementary school. Hey, we applaud that kind of entrepreneurial spirit in a 10 year old. Having later (much later) studied jewelry and metals at Pratt in Brooklyn, she employs many styles from casting to construction to plating keeping her pieces dynamic—and her skills sharp. A self-described Pinterest addict, her pieces definitely hit on the trends of the day, but in a way that is comfortable, elegant and totally wearable.
