UK Jewellery Designer of the Year 2013, Sophie Harley, is celebrated for her exquisitely designed handmade jewellery using only precious metals and stones. She flies the flag for a truly British brand and continues to design, create & manufacture all her pieces in London using traditional techniques.
Sophie is also well known throughout the world for designing the legendary Algerian Love Knot necklace and earrings for the James Bond film Casino Royale which further endorses her British credentials.
Sophie began to develop her jewellery collections and launch her bespoke design service following her training at The Royal College of Art where she studied for an MA in jewellery design. 25 years on she continues to produce a range of unique and contemporary pieces that have created a cult following, the more famous of which have included Joss Stone, Kate Winslet, Jerry Hall, Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Kate Beckinsale and Naomi Campbell.
Sophie has also worked on many exciting joint collaborations. With De-Beers she was asked to design a stunning winged horse brooch, encrusted in gold & diamonds which was presented to the winner of the Royal Ascot King George VI Stakes, by the Queen. She has also collaborated with Boodle & Dunthorne, Harvey Nichols and Pedlars whilst creating many one off pieces for catwalk shows and music videos.
Sophie has a distinctive and unique style of incorporating ancient and philosophical symbols with her signature winged heart symbol of love, hope and liberation, creating instantly recognisable and powerfully emotive jewellery pieces that have become ageless collectors items for generations.
Sophie’s beautiful studio near Portobello Road West London welcomes clients to browse existing collections or design & create their own bespoke pieces with Sophie.
