Founder of Trinity England Sonia Popiolek is a jewellery designer living and working near Plymouth in Devon. She began her training at the prestigious Sir John Cass school of Art and Design at London Guildhall University where she acquired excellent traditional jewellery making techniques.
Sonia has recently completed her training at Plymouth College of Art gaining a first class BA (Hons) degree in jewellery design. Her designs are bold yet fine in detail, favouring hand tools and the lost wax casting method to achieve her designs, resulting in an evocative aesthetic with elements of the unknown. Sonia combines base and precious metals with crystals and gemstones.
Sonia’s work has been exhibited at London Craft week and The Contemporary Craft Festival.
