About

Hi, my name is Sonia.

I was born in Taiwan. I met my photographer husband on a trip to the Philippines 20 years ago and have ever since had the great fortune to be able to travel all over the world with him and our daughters.

I have been in deserts, forests and mountains, but have spent most of my time picking shells on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. For many years I had no idea what I was going to do with all the shells and beautiful gem stones that I had collected!

I have met wonderful friends on the road and thank them from the bottom of my heart for giving me the confidence to use my hands and for sharing so many of their amazing handicraft skills with me. They are all my teachers and my inspiration.
I now live in London (still travelling a lot though)…

I now live in London (still travelling a lot though) and absolutely love making jewellery - It makes me feel alive!

My heart belongs to the ocean and nothing gives me greater joy than living on a beach and making jewellery by hand - sitting on the warm sand, under a swaying palm, listening to the tide and wondering what precious, beautiful shells it will bring me and then having fun in finding them with my daughters.

Please feel free to contact me should you be interested in a custom order. Most pieces can be lengthened or shortened at no extra charge.
