Hi, my name is Sonia Denise Roberts.
My journey to making jewelry began in the the summer of 2019. I made my first ring that summer. Six months later, I bought a bench and began making jewelry in my garage.
I am an artist living in the Bay Area, California. I am a wife, mother, aspiring world traveler, and lover of Black people, Black culture, nature, and good food. I draw inspiration from Black culture, hip hop and R&B, food, nature and my children. I enjoy working with copper and silver, hand fabrication is my first love, but I dabble in the lost wax casting process.
My great passion in life is to design jewelry that crosses the bridge between art on a wall and something you could wear and jewelry that expresses the desires and aspirations of marginalized people.
When I am not at the bench, you can find me reading a good book or watching a movie with my family, at a soccer or basketball game, or planning our next family trip.
I hope you are inspired by my jewelry and find different ways to express yourself and connect with others.
