Handpicked and handcrafted, FriedaSophie is a modernistic jewelry line with designs that maintain both a timeless simplicity and an unconventional look. Each piece from the San Francisco-based shop comes with a refreshing uniqueness and no guilt over where the materials come from.

All stones used – gemstones, mineral stones, geodes and other natural specimens – are purchased from companies that vow to uphold eco-friendly policies on how they are mined and cut. Roughly 80% of the stones are purchased in the United States and the rest directly from international mine owners.

Inspiration for the rings, necklaces and earrings lies within the name that started it all.

“My shop is named after my two grandmothers, Frieda and Sophie,” the designer, Sandra, said in an interview with All Women Stalk. “Both my grandmother’s influence inspired me to become an artist at an early age.”

The designer draws further inspiration from her frequent travels and keen interest in nature. The unfamiliar beauty of the world’s ethnicities and the natural bloom of the earth fuel her design concepts. She is moved to create wearable art pieces that sustain through centuries like the raw materials of the earth they are.
