‘Sweet Sophie’ – Stephan ABRY c/o AK/KRUSE photographs for SOPHIE KEEGAN JEWELRY

Sophie Keegan’s philosophy is to create finest quality jewelry that will last a lifetime and can be passed down as an heirloom. All jewelry is handmade in a fourth-generation workshop in Germany using centuries-old manufacturing techniques. As a trained goldsmith, Sophie oversees each step : Each piece is made in 18-carat gold to last a lifetime – a beautiful message in today’s world of mass production.

Stephan ABRY photographed the ‘Sweet Sophie’ looks presented here for SOPHIE KEEGAN JEWELRY. 

On the website of the Hamburg resident, we read : “Born in London, raised in Sydney, Sophie traveled extensively as a child, inheriting a love of art, architecture and design. After studying fine art in London and training as a goldsmith at Design College Enmore in Sydney, Sophie received a diploma in Gemmology at the GAA before moving to Paris. She started her fine jewelry career at Chaumet, one of Place Vendôme’s most prestigious maisons, under the wing of Beatrice de Plinval. During her career in Paris, Sophie designed a chain link for the iconic luxury Maison Hermès.

In 2016, she launched her eponymous label, creating sophisticated jewelry with extraordinary traditional craftsmanship. Sophie’s signature designs are as elegantly understated as the jeweler herself. Her diamond-set monogram initials have gained a cult following, and her bobble rings combine playful movement with an impeccable finish.”

“My first time in L.A. this year, I was surprised at how much the car culture of teenagers reminded me of growing up in the German countryside; the ultimate freedom you feel when you’re in a car with your friends in a place where nothing else gets you from A to B.” says German photographer living in London Clara NEBELING c/o AK/KRUSE.

Together with stylist Leonie Volk and with the support of Rebel Casting, Clara photographed the spread on kids + cars presented here. It was published in SLEEK magazine.
