Slate & Stone Jewelryhttps://www.slateandstonejewelry.com/
Slate & Stone Jewelry, designed and made by Sophie Silverstein, embodies a modern narrative captured in time with playful design, sculptural forms, and traditional techniques. Her most recent work revolves around metal with its clean lines carefully formed into bold shapes combined with raw textures and playful movement. Inspired by natural, primitive forms and elements of Memphis design and modern art, her new line expresses California soul in its full joy and splendor.
For her, metalsmithing is entirely process, motivated by the meditation of doing, as well as the fantasy and completion of a beautiful piece. The process of creation is born from piecing together each step – sawing, filing, soldering, sanding, polishing, setting, etc. – and from a larger personal process of relearning patience, diligence, precision, and trust.
