Canadian jewelry designer + yogini, Sonja Picard launched her eponymous jewelry line, the Sonja Picard Collection (SPC) in 2000, which now has over 350 pieces crafted in silver, gold, gemstones and Canadian diamonds and celebrates the yogic and tantric traditions of adornment. Today, Sonja puts her sculptural background to use as she first hand-carves each original piece in wax, invoking the human spirit and offering a sculptural organic quality to the jewelry.
