An Artist Making Useful and Wearable Goods

Hi, my name is Sophia Dixon Dillo and I am an artist working with light as a medium. I love all things shiny, so metal seemed to be a logical next step in my explorations. I've been making hand-cut and finished sterling silver, copper and brass jewelry. These pieces tie back to my artwork, emphasizing the natural undulations that come out of shapes that are drawn by hand.

Often when I go shopping, I have trouble finding things I really love, never quite what I am looking for... So I have put forth the challenge to myself to start making things I want to use and wear in my own daily life. My hope is that others will enjoy these explorations as much as I do!

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my slow design shop! I make everything here by hand myself. Each item is totally and completely unique! I use packaging made from recycled materials. I focus on sustainable and/or up-scaled materials as much as possible.

I will be making 1-2 shipments a week via the US Postal Service.

Please contact me directly if you need your shipment to be expedited.

Shipping costs are noted on the page for each item. Please note that international shipping is more than domestic shipping. International buyers will be responsible for any customs fees.


Please keep in mind that I live in the middle of nowhere (really!) and everything takes a little longer here. Imagine a town with 90% dirt roads, seasonal tumbleweeds, and the nearest stop light being an hour away... It's a slow-paced town, and I will do my best to get your order to you as soon as possible. If it take 3 days from the Post Office elsewhere, it can take 4 days from here. I will give you the tracking number so you can track when your item(s) will arrive.

That being said, please allow 7-10 days for domestic shipping.


International shipping will take longer. It is probably safe to assume it will take 10-20 days. I cannot be held responsible for items lost or held up in customs, so please keep in mind that this happens from time to time. Please be in touch with the Postal Service with questions about your shipment with the tracking number that is provided to you.

International buyers will be responsible for any customs fees.


The buyer is responsible for return shipping costs. Please insure your return shipment and get a tracking number. Soka Design does not take responsibility for items lost in return shipping. Any loss is between you and your postal carrier to resolve.
