Born from a single piece of wood, Sophie Monet is a line of handcrafted jewelry and accessories, lovingly made in Venice, California. Designed by Sophie Monet Okulick, the collection is a reflection of her life spent around the material, sitting with her dad, sculptor John Okulick, in his studio, and earnestly soaking up her surroundings. An affinity for the material’s endless design options and a desire to be mindful to sustainability led Okulick to create her entire first collection, cut and crafted of wood.
Since then, the line has grown, as has Okulick’s workmanship. Each new season brings bold new colors, precious stones and metals, with the designer sourcing inspiration from the rich landscape around her. Garnering attention for both its unique interplay of mid-century references and earth inspirations, the designs are bold, while still bestowing an ease of wear and natural, earthy appeal.
“ My jewelry is a synthesis of my life: The wood represents Los Angeles and what I was surrounded by growing up, whether it be the palm trees that line the streets of Santa Monica to the woodshop where I spent my childhood watching my dad at work. I sculpt the materials that surround me, bringing natural elements into different contexts.”
