Checha Sokolovic

Trained as an architect, Checha finds a new voice in jewelry. She explores familiar architectural forms in her work, creating jewelry of unexpected materials in an unexpected scale.

“It is this building in miniature that presents me with the challenge and excitement of using construction materials out of context. The intrinsic weight of polished concrete floors and stainless steel counters must now translate into wearable objects. A natural and expected crack in concrete walls cannot present itself in jewelry, and so new ways of working with ubiquitous materials must be found. Through the simplicity of geometric shapes, I wish to reveal and translate a hidden beauty and elegance found in the everyday”
