Brazil-based designer Yael Sonia will showcase her award-winning jewellery pieces at the AME Gallery in Central, Hong Kong from April 20 to May 1. The event will mark her first exhibition in Asia.
One of the showpieces, called “Spinning Wheel,” is inspired by toys. This kinetic jewellery is comprised of rolling spheres, swinging pendulums and spinning tops. The set made of fine gemstones, pearls and handcrafted 18-karat gold moves and jingles when it is worn.
Sonia’s designs have gained her public acclaim and international awards. In 2002, she won the Tahitian Pearl Trophy Award for her “Spinning Wheel” necklace from the Perpetual Motion Collection. Her art jewellery has been featured in world-renowned shows and galleries in Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US.
Sonia has also donated her “Reverse Fit” earrings for April’s JEWELS FOR GOOD, a monthly charity auction conducted by AME Gallery. AME Gallery will feature the piece for public auction on the JEWELS for GOOD website. All proceedings in April’s auction will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Currently, Sonia creates in her studio and showroom in São Paulo, Brazil. In April 2007, 10 years after her professional debut, she opened the first Yael Sonia art jewellery boutique at 922 Madison Avenue in New York City.
