A classically trained manufacturing jeweller specialising in hand made unique and rare designs Sonya is based on the Mornington Peninsula and has been in the jewellery industry for over 25 years. Often drawing inspiration from the beauty and ruggedness of its dramatic coastline to the artistry of its many time worn and gnarled trees, Sonya's designs are truly one of a kind.
“Just as people are not perfect copies of one another, my designs are one of a kind. All pieces are handmade and have small subtleties making them all the more organic and real, some have an antiquated presence almost as if they had been found in a Tudor England archaeological dig site.”
“I love to create what I call “modern treasure” and I believe that the design and purchase of jewellery is, and should always be, an impassioned experience.”
All of Sonya's designs are hand made and feature pitted, hammered or grainy finishes to the bands and settings, lending to them a certain character and charm.
The precious and semi-precious gemstones are hand chosen from International suppliers and include but are not limited to:
Diamonds White, Cognac and Black, Blue Topaz, Amethyst, Citrine, Peridot, Kunzite, Zircon, various coloured Sapphires and Tahitian and South Sea Pearls.
Only quality sterling silver along with 18, 14 and 9 carat golds are used when creating pieces.
