Sophie Stewart-Lopes | SODADE design
SODADE (so·dad) is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for someone or something. Its meaning comes from Cape Verdian creole, the language of my ancestors.
I started handcrafting jewelry pieces because of my longing to tap into my creative side abandoned in childhood for too long. I create unique pieces influenced by my african roots and french/american culture. The last few years have taught me to cherish the simple things and I hope my pieces bring a little bit of light, harmony and beauty to your world.
