About me: I have loved to create art since i was a child. I originally started out as a painter and then discovered my passion for working with metal after taking a goldsmith class. Whenever I’m free, I like to create and explore new ideas. I also sew, which i have inherited from my grandmother who was a fashion designer and my grand-grandmother who was a hat designer.
How did i get started making jewelry: I had a large collection of pressed flowers and leaves that i collected from my local forest. During the winter in 2008 i had the idea to re-draw the collection and make gold pieces from them to pair with natural gemstones.
My inspirations: Lately i have fallen in love with natural mineral stones that i gold frame into little pieces wearable of art. I love the natural beauty and structure of those unprocessed stones.

  22. How do you narrow down so many fabulous pieces to just one favorite? I love the baby lotus necklace and the lotus drop earrings and the circle of life necklace, and the interlocking circle necklace… The list goes on and on! I can tell I will be spending a lot of time (and money) in this shop.

  23. what an absolutely beautiful shop frieda sophie has! i had such a hard time picking a favorite b/c there are soo many lovely things, but i am going to go with the Twilight Aqua Gold Flower Lariat Necklace! i love the design of the flower and the beautiful gemstone!

  24. I have to say that I just can’t decide which piece of these two is my “favorite” from Frieda Sophie’s shop… I just adore BOTH the “Little Kitty Amethyst 14k Gold Necklace” and “Zen lotus flower garnet gold necklace”.

  25. how can i just pick one favorite item?! i love the white opal orchid flower earrings, wisteria lavender amethyst drop necklace, and the blue chalcedony 14k gold necklace! so pretty! :]

  27. I am loving the London blue apatite ruby vermeil chandelier earrings. especially like how the stones are connected with the figure eight swirls. these could be dressed up or down & still be very elegant.

  28. What a great giveaway! I’m a huge fan of this style! The lotus flower garnet gold necklace is really pretty. I’d love to get one, or even gift one to a friend!

    Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  29. The Little Kitty Amethyst 14k Gold Necklace just killed me. Is there a way of seeing that and being able to form a more coherent sentence than “kitttttttttttyyyyy!”, really?

  30. All her pieces are absolutely gorgeous! But for me, I’d have to say both the “Sun stars gold filigree lemon chalcedony earrings” and the “Darling Circle of Life 14k Gold Necklace” are my favorites by far!
