Sonya Bennett is among the UK's leading designers of contemporary jewellery in sterling silver and gold. 'British jewellery inspired by nature, love and art', tells you much about Sonya's design influences. Many of these take inspiration from botanical and other natural forms, including first-hand observations from nature; others from sources as diverse as eighteenth century Japanese illustrations and Romantic & Pre-Raphaelite symbolism. Sonya's aim is to enhance the beauty and femininity of those who wear her jewellery.
Having studied Jewellery & Silversmithing in Sheffield, Sonya worked in both sterling silver and gold. Sonya Bennett established her first workshop in 1996. Sonya's jewellery is now produced in her Somerset workshop in the UK.
All of Sonya's contemporary precious jewellery is designed and made exclusively in her workshop, which produces two sets of collections annually, each spring and autumn. In sterling silver or gold and often with semi precious stones and pearls. Sonya's distinctive work shows a degree of warmth and romance rarely seen in contemporary designer jewellery.
