FriedaSophie Jewelry

FriedaSophie is home to beautiful jewelry handmade from carefully selected gemstones, sterling silver and gold.

As a teenager, I had my period of buying dozens of cheap pieces of jewelry that would break after being worn twice (and I barely exaggerate). But with time, I came to believe in the permanence of a piece, in timeless, elegant, understated designs- precisely what FriedaSophie jewelry offers.

FriedaSophie hand crafts all jewelry components in her own San Francisco studio using gemstones, mineral stones, geodes, unique fossils and natural specimens, usually set in raw, hammered metals. I love how some of the stones still have rough edges, as if they had just been extracted from the earth.

I think the best part may be that all pieces in her store were made by using ethical business practices- something that is so rare in the gemstone jewelry business nowadays.

FriedaSophie can be found on Etsy, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr as well as her blog.
