Workshop 85 was formed by Sophia Emmett in Newcastle NSW in 2012.
Sophia has travelled extensively in Australia and the USA, pursuing her career in design.
In recent years Sophia has become interested in making jewellery, creating each piece as a small sculptural form. Sophia enjoys the challenge of designing and making pieces that are intimate, wearable constructions. These works have evolved from her innovative approach to materials, combined with a fascination of the relationship between texture and form.
We love the way Sophia uses non-precious materials to create playful, textural and elegant pieces.
