10 years working in TV/media in London, I realised
I wanted a complete change in direction to focus on
something more creative and personal. I started taking
evening classes in jewellery making, having always
been passionate about jewellery.
Eventually I left my job at the BBC to return to the
South West, and the sea, and study jewellery design/making
full-time at Plymouth College of Art & Design,
graduating with 1st Class Honours in 2004”
Sophy is self-employed as a designer/maker,
supplying a selection of contemporary jewellery outlets
around the UK, including ec one, London; Kath Libbert,
Saltsmill, nr Bradford; Oi Jewellery, London; Jeremy
Hoye, Brighton; and Gill Wing, London; as well as
producing numerous individual private commissions.
