Sophie Harley exploded from the Royal College of Art with her beautifully eclectic jewellery range setting up her first studio in 1990. As UK Jewellery Designer of the Year 2013, Sophie flies the flag for a truly British brand and continues to design, create & manufacture all her pieces in London using traditional techniques. The results have featured on the leading catwalks of fashion week, in-store with designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and on the bodies of A-list supermodels including Naomi Campbell, Saffron Aldridge and Jodie Kidd. She has an enormous celebrity following including Joss Stone, Kate Beckinsale, Jerry Hall, Judi Dench, Colin Firth, and Kate Winslet. Further endorsing her British credentials she designed the legendary Algerian Love Knot necklace and earrings for the James Bond film Casino Royale.
Other exciting collaborations include the diamond brooch Sophie designed with De-Beers, which was presented by the Queen to the winner of the Royal Ascot King George VI Stakes.
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.
