about the designer

Growing up, I cultivated a strong interest in horror and sci-fi cinema and literature and applied those interests to several facets of visual arts. My pieces are a combination of my fascination with the art of goldsmithing and jewelry’s long and wonderful history of wearable objects with meaning, mixed with unique stories with mythical or mysterious narratives.

I strive to join the quiet intimacy and elegance of jewelry with the magic of storytelling: narratives that emerge from myths, cultures, and stories, both new and old; universal and personal. I continue to lovingly design and handcraft each and every piece of Sofia Zakia jewelry from my studio in Montreal.

Not held to the tides of seasons, I release many capsule collections each year. I believe inspiration can come from anywhere. My collections are widely inspired, many pulling inspiration from myths, cultural symbols, and classic or visionary works of art such as Tchaikovski’s ballets or the poetry of E. E. Cummings. I like to believe these seeds of magic inform the key touchstones which the brand holds itself to.

Each object holds its beauty and strength over time while maintaining its unique and classic narratives. With this in mind, I have created pieces that use materials and craftsmanship that will last for decades. Each piece is made from top-grade refined gold and precious gemstones. All pieces feature our signature setting style and graceful silhouettes. My mode of design is to reinterpret mythologies in such a way that they become delicate parts of characteristically elegant pieces that tell personalized stories of the wearer.

Thoughtful Design & Sustainability

We are proud to provide conflict-free natural diamonds of brilliant quality. Every piece of Sofia Zakia jewelry is handmade by me with help from our local caster and setter in Montreal to ensure quality heirloom pieces that can be passed down from generation to generation. We have an enduring commitment to environmental principles in business operation, from artisanal studio methods to non-toxic, low energy requirements for local production. We work with Canadian suppliers to find materials that are meticulously sourced and of exceptional quality.

Each piece is designed, cast, cleaned, and set from Montreal, keeping our mission statement emphasis of local economy and supporting high-fashion manufacturing within Canada.

Social sustainability is also an important part of our mission, and we have taken many initiatives to give back.

Each Worry Doll pendant donates 5% of profits to Mayan Families. We have donated to local and international fundraisers such as Cedars Cander Foundation, NYACC, Canadian Mental Health Association, Planned Parenthood, Ethical Metalsmiths, among others. These practices, especially those that interact with the national quality of life of our Canadian community are benchmark of importance to us.
