ABOUT NATHALIE SHERMAN
Born in Marrakesh, Designer Nathalie Sherman moved to the US at the age of six. She grew up in LA, moving to San Diego in 1984, where she met her husband Ken and graduated from UCSD. Working as a paralegal for years, it was not until the 1996 birth of her daughter, Sophia, that Nathalie began compulsively designing jewelry and learning everything she could about manufacturing what she dreamed up. The line, originally eponymous, was renamed “SOPHIA & CHLOE” in 1999, when her daughter Chloe was born, appropriately paying homage to her ultimate inspiration.
Completely self taught, the designer has turned her passion and talent for design into a thriving business. Her work has evolved from dainty, fashion oriented collections to bolder, more complex and evocative jewelry designs. Unchanged are Nathalie’s uncompromising quality standards and the decidedly feminine aesthetic she brings to each design. Fifteen years later, it is easy spot her distinctive hand in each SOPHIA & CHLOE piece.
Nathalie is heavily influenced by her heritage and home. Byzantine, Moroccan motifs are evident in her work, as is the casual easy feel of her beloved coastal San Diego where she lives with her family. Her most recent, symbolic collections, SIGNS OF A GOOD LIFE, LANGUAGE OF BANGLES
and OH SO CHARMING
all feature symbols discreetly and artfully incorporated into each design, making each one its own totem of good luck and well being. These collections have been extremely well received and have provided endless inspiration for Nathalie.
Quality of service and craftsmanship are of utmost importance to the designer who feels that jewelry, at any level, should feel special. Each design is created with great care by Nathalie, whose goal is to design the best possible version of each inspired piece. Every SOPHIA & CHLOE design is handmade, in the United States, by experienced and talented staff who are committed to creating pieces that are made with the greatest attention to detail.
SOPHIA & CHLOE designs are a favorite of celebrities, and are often featured on numerous television shows and in national print publications.
We at SOPHIA & CHLOE hope you enjoy our current collections. We look forward to adorning you!
