About

Sofia Pinelli™

Thank you for coming to my About page. I am flattered that you are interested in me, for an artist, the hardest thing in the world is to talk about ourselves. Luckily, I love to talk.

My first boss (and favorite of all time) taught me how to make a pair of earrings. We went to this tiny (really tiny) bead shop in San Francisco, where the walls were lined almost floor to the 6 ft ceiling with small jars of colorful beads. It was so thrilling! I made my mom two pairs of earrings and gave them to her for her birthday. She loved them, and I was hooked.

I learned to crochet from my grandmother, but it wasn't until my first son was born that I actually started to really make things. I needed something where I could sit with them but put away quickly. One of the last times I saw my Grandmother, on her 95th birthday, I was making a cowl for my sister and Grandma insisted on inspecting my stitches. Luckily they were approved - and I wonder where my perfection issues stem from....

My studio is a small space that I have learned to keep neat in order to be creative. I have an area for jewelry making, sewing and knitting/crocheting. I keep an evolving inspiration board, that changes with the seasons. I couldn't live without my inspiration clippings either, so they are in books that I can curl up on the couch with. I am a little old school because I still use books for research and keep handwritten journals.

Inspiration comes from everywhere. I am like a little kid in a toy store when I see fresh bolts of fabric at the fabric boutiques, or the rows and rows of beautiful beads at the gem shows, and don't even get me started on yarn! Oh! So much to create and such a short life! Color is huge for me, color is probably half of the driving force of my creative process.

I must love a piece enough to wear it myself before I will sell it. It must provoke pangs of - "I want to keep this," in order to make the cut. My husband jokes I am a perfectionist, but I just know what I want it to look like and I won't give up until it does.

My daily epiphanies about myself and life created the name for my shop. I love epiphanies - all kinds, like creative ones, spiritual ones, parenting ones, and so on. I love how life is sweeter once I understand a little more. Getting over that frustrating moment when I think an idea is about to kaput, and voile! Something beautiful.
I love purple - all shades - I just can't get enough of it.

I am evolving. Right now I am developing my identity as an artist. Etsy has been a wonderful space to share my ideas and pieces with others. I look forward to the future with great excitement, and I am thrilled you are into what I do.

Keep movin' forward. Thank you for buying from artists, it's wonderful people like you who make it possible for us to thrive.
