SO­PHIE BILLE BRAHE

World Travel Magazine - - Insider Sophie Bille Brahe -

Af­ter earn­ing her post­grad­u­ate de­gree from the Royal Col­lege of Arts in Lon­don, So­phie Bille Brahe un­leashed her artistry to the world through her epony­mous la­bel of fine jew­ellery. She draws in­spi­ra­tion from, among oth­ers, po­etic el­e­ments and her Scan­di­na­vian her­itage. She shares her favourite cre­ation, an 18-karat gold ear cuff with cham­pagne-coloured di­a­monds, which was heav­ily in­flu­enced by her ances­try.

“I cre­ated the Crois­sant de Lune for my first col­lec­tion, Le Fêne­tre. This is still my ab­so­lute favourite piece even though I made it ten years ago. It was in­spired by my an­ces­tor Ty­cho Brahe who was a no­table Dan­ish as­tronomer in the 16th cen­tury. I grew up hear­ing about his dis­cov­er­ies and it started a fas­ci­na­tion with the stars and the night sky. I wanted to cre­ate this idea of a con­stel­la­tion of stars in the ear but in a very mod­ern way.” Her lat­est col­lec­tion is Le Mariage, in­spired by a wedding ring she made for her best friend. Start­ing with the idea of the clas­sic en­gage­ment ring, So­phie gave it her own twist. “They’re per­fect for a bride and can also be worn ef­fort­lessly ev­ery day.” Her knack for trans­lat­ing her per­son­al­ity into avant-garde pieces drew the ad­mi­ra­tion of many discerning eyes who have be­come her loyal clients.
