New Client: Sophie Blake

June 20, 2011

After successfully launching her self-titled collection earlier this month at Henri Bendel’s in NYC, jewelry designer Sophie Blake is setting out to leave her mark on the world of fashion’s elite. Her collection, featuring a unique blend of quality workmanship, vivacious statement and casual simplicity was inspired by the regal beauty of Ancient Egyptian and Aztec patterns. As a designer, it was important for Sophie to create a collection that is as versatile as is beautiful. She states, “The pyramid ring for example is an everyday piece that could be thrown on with jeans and a tee, while the turquoise bib necklace is meant for a woman to make a bit more of a statement.”

For those of you interested in supporting “Made in the U.S.A” brands, Sophie Blake’s designs are manufactured exclusively in New York City.  Click here, for a closer look at her collection.
