Lisbeth - The Perfect Piece

We were so excited to get the opportunity to sit down and chat with the not only talented but beautiful Sophie Alden, inspiration and mastermind behind "Lisbeth Jewelry"  - Like seriously, could this girl be any prettier!!!!

What makes this brand so special? (Where do we start?) It's soft, elegant, feminine and edgy all in one. Lisbeths styles are classic, great for layering, timeless and always current. Not to mention, it's MADE IN CANADA!!!!! 

Lisbeth is on our list of MUST HAVE items for 2016. (Of course it is!)


Check out what Sophie shared with us in the Q and A below........

Q: How did you come up with Lisbeth? Brand/idea.

A: "Lisbeth Jewelry really began organically. I have always been creative and enjoyed designing things in my spare time. I was working in fashion before the line launched and at the time there were not a lot of local jewelry designers. I originally created Lisbeth Jewelry to fill a void in my own closet. I was always on the search for simple, classic, jewelry with a twist that was of high quality, so i decided to create my own line."

Q: Where do you get your inspiration from season to season?

A: "I am inspired by so many things all of the time. I never get my source of inspiration from one thing. I am always sketching or jotting ideas down. I often get inspired at the strangest times when I am least expecting it. I keep all of my ideas and then usually have a theme or a concept for each season that I bud the collection around. Spring 16 was inspired by the desert for example. I also find just playing around with new designs inspiring - they always morph into something different than you originally intended."

Q: How would you describe a "Lisbeth Girl"

A: The Lisbeth girl is classic and modern with but has a bit of an edge. Her aesthetic is clean and simple but not to perfect.

Q: Was being a Canadian made brand something that was always important to you?

A: Yes, of course. I am so proud to be Canadian and have a Canadian based business. There really are so many fantastic female creatives here ad I am proud to be a part of that group. I think it is so important to support each other and our independent retailers, so I'm just happy to be working in this community.



Q: On average how much time goes into each piece?

A: Oh gosh, that's hard. I have never been asked that before or even thought of it. It is such a process for each piece - from concept to finished product. I have never counted the hours, but I will say it takes hours and hours and months and months for a collection to come together.

Q: You have an amazing Instagram, you have some adorable animal pics? Do you have pets?

A: I have two babies, a dog Charlie and a bunny Papier. They are the most precious things to me. They are the best of friends and warm my heart every single day. I would be lost without them.


Q: What would we find you doing in your spare time?

A: Well, I'm currently living in Toronto and I'm often biking around the city exploring the different neighborhoods. There is so much to do here it blows my mind! I love going to the Beaches on a beautiful day. I definitely frequent the AGO, The National Ballet and all the amazing arts the city has to offer. I also love searching through the vintage stores around the city, there are so many good ones here!

Q: Tell us 3 things about yourself?

A: I love to cook and bake. I am a major animal lover. If I wasn't a jewelry designer I would probably be and interior designer.
