Sonia J Jewellery

Jewellery is very personal and in todays market there is a very diverse and eclectic mix of people creating a wide range of jewellery from beading to wire-work to silver/goldsmithing for you to choose from.

So in the next few weeks I am going to feature different artists and their work.  As you know I design and make jewellery but there are so many other jewellery designers who's work I admire that I just have to share their work with you.

Today I am going to show you some of Sonias work. 

Sonia is a Jewellery Designer based in Staffordshire, England specialising in personally handmade silver jewellery.  She creates individual pieces of jewellery in sterling silver and swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, gemstones, pearls and other materials.  

Sonias passion for handmade jewellery came from a love of all things beautiful and sparkly.  Sonia became increasingly frustrated at mass produced items on the high street and so decided to do something about it and enrolled on a silversmithing and jewellery course.  It's fair to say she has never looked back!

Sonias inspiration comes from a number of sources, some of them very unlikely, and very often in the middle of the night or on her way to a meeting.

Solid sterling silver heavy bangle with "ball" ends and a  hand sawn daisy.




Jasper pendant hand wrapped in sterling silver to a unique design with integral bail.


Sterling Silver "Hearts"   Handcrafted matching earring and pendant set.  The hearts are gently curved and have different hammered textures on each side.
