Sophie Pujebet has been a New Yorker and jewelry designer for the past 40+ years. Her childhood in Morocco and France and her travels as an adult, have influenced her designs and her appreciation for nature, art, beauty and spirituality.
Her work consists of organic shapes, flowers, animals and birds. Stars and hearts are charming repeat characters in her collection. She uses the small scale sculpture technique of carving in wax and casting in all natural metals - gold, sterling silver and brass.
Sophie started experimenting with this medium and technique during her marriage to a sculptor who held a Masters Degree from Tyler School of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Her access to his studio and equipment enabled her to experiment with these metals. After her small line of bracelets nearly sold out at her first showcase, her business grew.
"I love beauty and art. The world is a marvelous source of inspiration and with my jewelry I can express my vision."
Just in time for Mother's Day, Parachute Brooklyn is offering a special edition of matching necklaces. Available in adult & child chain lengths, the necklaces are sold individually or as set.
