Sonja‘s background in Production design for Theater and Film has oriented her toward a more narrative approach when designing jewellery. Her inspirations come from legends, ideas or thoughts which she transforms into visual stories using symbols found in nature. She dreams to improve and change the general notion of how jewelry should be worn, what material it should be made of and what it should say about the wearer. She believes that jewelry should be anything that in relation to the human body offers some sense of the wearer and the possibility for communication.
SONJA’S STATEMENT OF ART:
I believe that every piece of art should be created as a direct expression of the artist’s soul, extension of the artist’s thoughts and the essence of the artist’s feelings in relation to the environment.
It should intrigue, provoke and awaken the consumer and like so, pushing him to react.
