about the designer
Sofia Ajram is a jewelry designer from Montreal, Canada. Her interest in all things art and culture began in her childhood, where she applied her interest in American gothic literature and science fiction to several facets of visual arts, including sculpting, graphic design, photography, and cosplay.
Known for her dreamlike photography which brought to life mystical worlds and astral projections, Sofia sought out various ways in which her inspirations could reflect themselves in her creations. She fell in love with metalsmithing after discovering the art of lost-wax casting, a process by which a fine metal sculpture is cast from an original wax piece.
In 2015, Sofia Zakia was established, and Sofia began to actualize the pieces she had imagined, focusing her passion for visual arts and storytelling into the goal of cultivating Sofia Zakia into a beloved brand that would merge celestial magic with the quiet intimacy and feminine elegance of jewelry. Sofia continues to lovingly design and handcraft each and every piece of Sofia Zakia from her studio in Montreal.
