For me, designing a piece of jewelry is incredible! I describe it like reading a story I have never read while, at the same time, I am the author. My introduction to jewelry was in middle school. My teacher, ex-golden gloves boxer turned art teacher, made beautiful, delicate jewelry. This strange combination totally got me. I found designing jewelry came naturally and the metalwork akin to meditation. I aced the class. I was hooked! That Christmas my mother gave me all of the basic tools to begin what is now my life's passion. With over 30 years of experience, working for large jewelry stores, small custom boutiques and high end production studios, I have seen it all. And I love it!
I specialize in custom one-of-a-kind, wedding and occasion jewelry. I work mainly in platinum and gold, using precious and semi-precious stones.
Evident in every piece is my love of metalwork.
My work has been featured on HGTV, in Martha Stewart Weddings, Bridal Guide, Minnesota Bride and Minnesota Monthly, among others.
My custom design process is kick-ass! Let's meet outside at a cafe or a bar and have a drink and talk about what you want. I'll bring my design book and design right before your eyes! Usually design appointments take about an hour and a half. Entire projects take about 6 weeks to complete. I can also do the same on-line if you prefer. So let's hang out, have a drink, and make this happen!
I believe that the experience of having a piece of jewelry created just for you is as important as the piece itself.
" Soren, thank you for all of your work on our rings. We absolutely love them. And we will be sure to tell our friends. Thank you so much!"
-Nick and Pamela
"Soren, thank you for listening so well and designing earrings that are such a perfect reflection of what I was hoping for even though I couldn't quite describe or imagine what they would be. They are perfect!"
"I can't stop looking at my beautiful ring! Thank you Soren!"
"Soren, I admire your singular ability to listen and connect in a way that allows you to create unique pieces that are truly expressions of the people who wear them...one of a kind, both you as a person-and the art you create. Thank you."
"Soren, thank you for all of your help. The whole process was so easy and the ring is amazing."
"I love the ring you made for me! It's perfect. Thank you!"
"Soren, it was really good meeting you. And the ring is amazing! Thank you. I really appreciate the time you took to listen to my ideas. And then to see you just draw it right there was really cool. Thank you again."
