Sophie Deryn Minshull
I am an ethical jewellery designer and maker; the key motivations behind my practice are deeply rooted from a passion for the environment, sustainability and herbalism.
Throughout the Botanic collection, I have responded to the environment through wearables, making a connection between precious metals and natural substances. I have adapted traditional apothecary tools and containers into functional pieces of jewellery. The purpose behind Botanic, is for the user to enjoy wearing asymmetrical jewellery and have the amenities of herbal remedies and necessary tools at any moment. Whether that moment being a minor headache or serve burn, the jewellery is available to those who seek a natural alternative to prescription medicine.
