The story of Sophie's in Jupiter

Lately I have been asked about the story behind the founding of Sophie's in Jupiter, so I have decided to tell it directly on our website. I would like to say that I was idle in my country house when it occurred to me to found a jewelry line based on astrology and Western esoteric currents, but the truth is that it was much less aristocratic.

At the age of 16 I created my first pieces of jewelry and began to sell them to my acquaintances and family wherever I went, on the school bus, in the neighborhood where I spent the summer, at family gatherings, etc. . Thanks to this small business, I was the first of my brothers to have a checking account. A few years later, when I entered university, I stopped designing pieces although I maintained my love for crafts.

Many years later, during my second motherhood, and after a few years as logistics director in a fashion brand, I decided to take a break and took some jewelry courses and seminars. I realized that I had that passion latent and that I had not forgotten it. I set up a workshop at my parents' house where I spent hours and hours materializing all the ideas that came to my mind. Now I couldn't walk down the street without noticing the jewelry people were wearing or when I watched cartoon movies with my children, I loved the jewelry that many characters wore. It took me a lot but finally I decided to create my own jewelry brand, taking care of certain basic principles:

  • Enjoy the daily work making jewelry that I would like to wear.
  • Be sustainable by working with local suppliers and materials and making durable pieces with a timeless design.
  • Facilitate service for customers through digitalization and automation.

The name of the brand, Sophie's in Jupiter, represents my dreamier side and helps give an idea that the designs come from an unknown place inside me but in outer space. On the other hand, in an astrological sense, Jupiter is associated with the principles of growth, prosperity and good fortune, and more personally with justice, the ideals and the highest goals. In short, if you are there, dear Jupiter, show up, because there is work here, boy.

Speaking of astrology, I must not forget to tell you that my mother was a witch , and that from her I have learned everything I know about esoteric currents: astrology, palmistry or tarot. Since I was little I have always known when it was a good time to get a haircut, sign a contract or create a business, by looking at my birth chart and the current position of the planets. Yes, okay, maybe it's fashionable now to cut your hair with the cycle of the moon but I already did it in the eighties.

Throughout my life natural stones have also accompanied and helped me to highlight some aspects of my personality. On occasions I have used the stone of my sign or ascendant to enhance its characteristics and on other occasions I have chosen a stone from another sign whose abilities he wanted to improve. The fact is that at some point, during my travels between Jupiter and my workshop, it occurred to me that instead of carrying an amethyst crystal through the streets, I could set a stone with properties in my jewelry. All friendly advantages.

But I'm not a person to stop there, and I also said to myself: "Why don't we give the brand an old, exotic feel?" So, as I have always considered that in another life I was Egyptian and Egypt is probably the country that I have visited the most and that has inspired me the most, I have started to create a line of super modern jewelry reflecting what Ancient Egypt suggests to me . In the collection you can see pieces such as the key of life , which was the amulet of many Egyptian gods, the scarab , which was a sacred animal, or the lapis lazuli stones that were used to decorate the thrones of the pharaohs.

Taking into account that I am an agricultural engineer, it was to be expected that I would end up devising pieces whose protagonist is nature. I love playing with the shape and texture of what has been the object of study during my university years. Here's the deal and for now I think I'm delivering.

Well, in addition to developing these trends, I also make customizations and accept orders. Many times it is you who give me new ideas with your proposals, so I can only thank you for your help.

This is the small story of this brand that has emerged from the attraction for the esoteric and craftsmanship. Ultimately, this is me and this is what I do, thanks for reading.
