Sophie started Shutter Jewellery in 2015 by putting her love of photography, design, jewellery and all things unusual in a big pot and to see what she came up with.
Inevitably, her first pieces were designed for her. She took her favourite photographs, which were black and white, and matched them up with chunky zinc frames and black ribbon. Quite Gothic. She loved these pieces, but they are an aquired taste and she has since experimented with many different subjects and techniques. She has expanded the range to make sure she has something for everyone, or at least that’s the plan.
Sophie makes everything in her home studio in Walton on Thames, Surrey and wherever possible she sources her materials from other small UK companies.
