About

: : : Ruby gemstones and Madrina Sofia : : :

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost." Martha Graham

Welcome to Madrina Sofia. My jewelry is handmade by me in my small home studio in San Francisco where I use wire and precious and semi-precious gemstones to create pieces that awaken and enhance a woman's spirit...

My shop is named after my great-grandmother and godmother, Sofia, while my work is inspired by her. She had the most beautiful wooden curio cabinet in her adobe home that displayed an enchanting collection of jewels ~ beautiful antique wooden and glass rosaries, turquoise jewelry and small statues of Catholic saints...a magical world in the eyes of a little girl.

Years later, I was introduced to Etsy, during an unusual time in my life where I wasn't creating anything. Here was a magical place that offered so much inspiration - not to mention the supplies to begin creating again. I was immediately drawn to these lovely ruby gemstone beads I saw on Etsy. Upon seeing these beautiful gemstones, I recalled how much I enjoyed making jewelry as a teenager - I would save my lunch money and go buy beads at the local bead shop in the small town I grew up in. I would spend hours constructing necklaces and earrings out of beads and vintage jewelry....

Almost twenty years later, I returned to making jewelry - to this magical world. This time around I found myself gravitating towards these lovely ruby gemstones - not just for their apparent beauty but for the way they made me feel working with them and wearing them. It is like nothing else. I took a couple of classes and purchased every book about gemstones and wire wrapping I could get my hands on. I spent countless hours experimenting with wire and made a plethora of mistakes but I also learned quite a bit in the process. I also went to every bead and gemstone show in the Bay Area where I spent a little more than my lunch money....My curiosity didn't subside - I also became enthralled in researching the meanings and healing properties behind these gemstones. The more information I found out in my research and the more pieces I created, the more I felt my great-grandmother and Godmother's presence and guidance. Her spirit is with me in the studio....

I am very grateful that a place like Etsy exists - I have had the blessing to meet a lot of genuinely wonderful folks on here - both as a shop owner and as a member. And I get the opportunity to share this magical world with you.

So, welcome friends, family, fellow Etsians, and fellow mijas. I hope you enjoy what I have created. Thank you so much for visiting Madrina Sofia...

With Love,
Sophia
