Final tweaks are being made to the Root5 Winter Edition Web-Shop. We'll do a daily snapshot of newly added designers.
We've known Sophie Thomas for a while. She is an alumni of Central Saint Martins where she studied BA Jewellery and an MA in Design. Sophie uses bold colour, striking shapes and an innovative use of material. We've chosen 4 pieces from Collection.02 . A series of statement rings which have also been designed to be worn as pendants.
She says of her work:
'This jewellery collection embraces the unique properties of Corian, a material more usually associated with architecture. Combining bold forms and soft surfaces the pieces demonstrate how perceived imperfections can be re-conceptualised to striking advantage.'
Indeed we're not the only ones to love Sophie's work, see her work featured on the Design Milk blog, Trend Hunter and was the Financial Times' highlight of DesignersBlock at the 2013 London Design Festival. There's more info on her website too.
All available at the Root5 Web-Shop from Tuesday 3rd December 2013.
