Sonia Santamaria has been learning and making jewellery for 20 years. Her inspiration comes from travelling in Southamerica, Spain and Portugal and meeting many artists, also for many years living a nomad life, selling while travelling and always learning from different designers and jewellery makers. In London, Sonia decided to start a more settled life and since 2009, has been selling her jewellery at Spitalfields Market. Since the first day, Spitalfields has felt like home.
Brand vision: Jewellery made with the belief that everything can be turned to beautiful. Is all about recycling and changing into a new positive self. Same as a piece of brass with caring and dedication can become a piece of art, we all souls can become art.
Focus: Free people open to contrasts, new perceptions, new eyes.
Ethos: Handmade process, never mass-produced. Creating something, and earning a living from that, is a fulfilling sensation. And makes a balance. This brand is part of who we are and what we believe.
You can find Sonia at Spitalfields Market on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
