Meet the Designer

The incredible vistas of rocky, oceanfront cliffs from her childhood on the Maine coast forged Sophie’s early reverence for nature. In this rugged landscape, she discovered her passion for crafting precious, miniature, wearable sculptures. 

Sophie followed her path through a BFA in Metalsmithing at MassArt, to the founding of her first studio in 2009, and to the opening of her South End, Boston showroom, Ore, in 2014. Through the evolution, Sophie remains enamored with the artist’s hands-on approach to process and craft. Sophie is a proud member of Ethical Metalsmiths, a group working to improve ethics and sustainability across all facets of the jewelry industry.
