HANDMADE IN SEATTLE
Sophie Gardner’s jewelry creates an aesthetic bridge between ancient and modern worlds. She incorporates the intricate details of Spain 's Moorish architecture, tiles, arabesques, and portals; the repetitive beauty of East Indian textiles; and the strength and simplicity of Japanese illustration and stencil design. An emphasis is placed equally on the positive space of the metal, and negative space of the skin. Her innovative approach to metal and unique ability to respond to its dynamic properties, transforms gold, silver, and platinum into unique, sweet, and often exotic designs.
