I’m Sophie and I began Shutter Jewellery in 2015. While I live close to London and have been known to wander around the city taking pictures the bustling urban jungle, it’s the real jungle, countryside, rainforests and woodland that really inspire and relax me. This is why Shutter Jewellery has evolved into a celebration of birds, botanicals and butterflies and became little symbols of that escapism.
Each jewellery piece contains a scaled down version of one of my own original photographs and I look for striking detail, shape or colour which will be just as bold on a tiny scale. The photographs are used in a number of ways, but my signature pieces use a little pebble of glass over the top which magnifies the detail and looks just like a tiny version of the real thing.
Many of us feel like we’ve taken enough from our world and want to preserve those last little unspoilt corners. Silver is a lifetime material and each item’s packaging is recycled, recyclable or both wherever possible.
The wonderful bunch of Shutter Jewellery customers have given so much positive feedback on this attention to detail and often very moving stories behind why they choose the pieces they do. Shutter Jewellery is now stocked in a handful of lovely shops and galleries Etsy has helped it reach like-minded customers across the globe.
If you’d like a come and see me in person keep an eye on the events section below to see where I’ll be next or come and visit me in my riverside studio in Walton-on-Thames where I'll be happy to show you what I'm working on.
