5 Octobre

Sophie Pfeffer-Shapira is the mind and hand behind Parisian jewelry line, 5 Octobre. Researching the materials in her work requires translation from French to English. Subtle shifts like diamont to diamond, less intuitive but equally beautiful changes such as argent to silver and or to gold. Descriptions of her intricate pieces read like a plaque description of a painting or an artifact in a history museum. The weight of Sophie’s mind is evident when a piece is held in hand. A delicately wound pony bracelet with red silk thread or precious enamel and black diamond charms diligently placed on a necklace. For a moment, transport to the set of a Federico Fellini film she named a collection after and spin with the sublime wisdom in her homage to its composition.
