In her research, Sophia is exploring movement within the limitation of one material and it’s possibilities within one autonomous piece. She is searching for a way to create fluidity in one continuous shape. One form of jewellery that embodies these properties is chain.
In her work she considers the links of a chain and the way they are connected as a thing-in-itself and not just as a support for other jewellery; the chain and it’s repetitive connection as the main subject in her jewellery pieces.
