Sophia Tink Jewellery Art


Sophia Tink is the owner of Sophia Tink Jewellery Art Studio in the beautiful Algonquin Highlands in Ontario Canada.

“Individualistic, Imaginative, and Identifiable are how I would describe my work. My art pieces are hand sketched, sculpted, finely detailed and finished to the highest metalsmithing standards. Quality is of the utmost importance to me along with design sensibility.  I love what I do.  It allows me to merge my two passions, Art and Nature, to create unique Jewellery Art pieces using traditional and non-traditional jewellery techniques.”

Since 1982, Sophia has been a professional artist and instructor of one–of–a–kind offerings.  She is formally trained with the Sogetsu Ikebana School in the Japanese Art of Floral Design.
