Designers find inspiration in all sorts of places. For Sophie Monet, that inspiration started in her father’s wood shop a few years back and has transformed into a stunning company that brings art, nature and beauty all together in one piece of jewelry. Here Sophie shares a little more on her inspiration and design, “My jewelry is a synthesis of my life. The wood represents Los Angeles and what I was surrounded by growing up. Whether it be palm trees that line the streets from Venice to Santa Monica or my close family bonds, and the wood shop I spent my childhood in. The gol and stone represent my entry into independence in New York. The urban mountains continue to be a source of my inspiration, shaping the growth of my knowledge. I synthesize and sculpt the materials that surround me, bringing natural elements into different contexts.”
Where do you draw inspiration from? Would wood jewelry fit in with your style? I am totally in love with the wood pony tail piece.
