“I believe it is our true nature to be attracted to beauty …it elevates our soul and physical well being by surrounding our home or adorning oneself with something beautiful and exquisite. Jewelry and art are more than decoration, they are an extension of our selves, a reflection of our personal evolution and cosmology.” – Sonja Picard”
Canadian award-winning Jewelry Designer Sonja Picard has been a professional full time artist since 1990. Called a ‘bling therapist” by many and a modern-day Alchemist from her renown bespoke services of Recycle your love and more exclusive service called The Cosmology Collection. Prescribing and making jewelry specifically for her clients as a ‘medicinal jewelled elixir” to promote rebalancing of physical and emotional well being and career or relationship connection for your future self. Her 30 years of comprehensive knowledge of mysticism and spiritual landscape has shaped her creativity by study and initiation of sacred mantras and study of Shamanism. Driven to give voice to the sacred, Sonja creates from the ancient Eastern tradition of ‘transmission’ where the making of the piece passes through the artist in heart connection while chanting sacred mantras in the creative process. A combination of meditation, mysticism and devotion that allows the artist to manifest the vision without connection to mind or ego all while holding its intention. Whether it is hand carving her jewelry or creating a painting this ‘ancient technology’ has always been a part of her creative process.
Sonja creates her jewelry by ‘slow design’, hand carving and sculpting each of her originals in wax, inscribing a word, symbol or mantra that creates a message, a secret language giving voice to our future that becomes our daily witness. Wearing Sonja’s pieces are like wearing a positive affirmation which becomes your personal meditation to walk towards the greatest vision of ourselves. Sonja inspires to invoke the human spirit alongside with the sacred in every piece she creates.
