More about our designer Sofia in her own words

I always had a passion for handmade and hand crafted items, whether it be a jewellery or a delicately hand crafted decoration pieces.

As a child I saw my mother crafting beautiful dresses for her daughters, helping us in our hand crafted projects for schools, it instilled a passion in me to create items with my hands from any material I could mould or work with.  I remember those times and cherish them, those innocent memories of creating doll’s dinning set with candle wax!, knitting sweaters or creating necklaces for dolls with beads Ahhhh! those days :-) . I some time wish I could turn back time and go back to child hood.

Now that I have my own children I try to recreate & relive the same memories with them.  My passion for handmade items and love for unique ness brought me to create Hijab pins and bookmarks for my family and friends. I was then encouraged by my husband and family to bring my love and passion of craftsmanship to outside world. So here I am :-) .

I find making jewellery very relaxing and it reminds me of the beauty that is all around us created by Allah (subha u talla) for us to enjoy and contemplate on.  I’m fortunate enough to have travelled to beautiful places especially northern areas of Pakistan and other countries, for this I am thankful to my father. I get my inspiration from my memories of green luscious valleys, high mountains, deep blue lakes and teal colour seas.

The quality of the materials I use is very important to me, and I enjoy searching for new and inspirational stones, crystals and other materials.  I love to incorporate colour, hearts and flowers into my jewellery but I also like to do pieces that have a vintage or ethnic look to them. Whenever I am designing or creating a piece of jewellery I try to follow the beautiful saying of Holy Prophet (Sallah ho alahe wa sallim),

“None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself”

Hadith in al-Bukhari

I’m hoping insha-Allah to add unique handcrafted and crafted accessories from other crafters with a very affordable and attractive price tag to my collection! So look out for them!

WaSalaam,
