Sophie Ratner designs and hand-makes each piece of jewelry, often using ancient techniques incorporating granulation and alloying. She has traveled widely and takes her inspiration from patterns and textures encountered in the textiles and architecture of India, Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, and Ghana. While her pieces are animated by ancient sources, they are always executed with a contemporary sensibility.
