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, 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, silver, and gold; hand fabrication is my first love, but I dabble in the lost wax casting process.
My plant-inspired jewelry is hand fabricated. I particularly love the uniqueness of plants and their therapeutic properties. I believe food is culture, love, and joy. Food is not just fuel and nutrients, food is also pleasure, connection, and memories.
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 nature.
