Jewelry Designer

2016 Winner: Sophie Hughes


Sophie Hughes’ South End shop Ore has made a big impact on the local jewelry scene while earning national kudos in Glamour, the Zoe Report and Harper’s Bazaar. Wielding hammer and torch in a studio lofted above her store, Hughes bangs out bling from recycled metals, often fusing materials together for unique color-blocked pieces and adding reclaimed or ethically sourced gems and old mine-cut diamonds. One thing rings true—the results are breathtaking.
