Because the Cosmos is the Universe and our universe is infinite. As is a piece of Jewelry. A bracelet, a necklace, or a mala are all pieces of infinity, that’s why we love making them, emerging us in the moment to create a piece of art specially for you.
"When making jewelry, we depend on whatever flows in the moment. We create what feels right, not knowing what we're going to make next, it’s the same when we search for stones, beads, crystals, pendant’s and everything else we need to create these one of a kind pieces"
Nigel started making jewelry after he had a severe injury. He wasn't able to walk for 6 months. So he was bedridden and partly in a wheelchair, with not much to do.
Leaving him with an urge to create and to fill his days.
After a few years of making jewellery, Nigel got more and more other projects that needed his attention, leading to the decision to stop with the creation of jewellery. This decision was mainly made because he wanted to keep this process a creative process and didn't want to force this.
After a year without Somsoc Jewelry, Nigel participated in a Dutch television show called 'Ik Ga Op Reis en Neem Mee', where he met Iris. They fell in love and did many creative projects together regarding videography and photography. They couldn't be seen out in public together, because the television show wasn't fully broadcasted yet. That's why they spent a lot of time in their houses together.
That's when Nigel introduced the creative process of making bracelets to Iris. They made bracelets and necklaces almost every night after work.
They enjoyed doing this together so much that they wanted to share this with the world.
Nigel and Iris decided to set Somsoc Jewelry up again, this time, not only jewellery made by the hands of Nigel, but bracelets made by both Nigel and Iris.
Each piece is handmade and we put all our love in it, never making more then 10 of the same piece and some pieces having even less to only one piece made to let all bracelets be unique.
Bracelets, Necklaces and Mala’s 📿 that is what we make.
It goes so much further than a fashion item....
A certain piece can do so much for you, it holds a story and to each and everyone it’s different....
It can stand for luck, it can hold memories because you bought it someplace special or you got it from someone meaningful.
You put it on, on a special day, you believe in it, you pray with it, consider it holy and sometimes even pass it on to someone.
This what Somsoc is to us, and we put that in every piece we make 📿💭
