Sophie Barclay, London jeweller and founder of Wilder, studied Goldsmithing, Silversmithing and Jewellery at the University for the Creative Arts in Kent.

Since graduating in 2013 Sophie has travelled through Central America, Thailand and India following her innate desire to explore.

Inspired by the feeling of being 'small' - observing the Moon and stars or climbing the dramatic mountains of Guatemala - Sophie feels a strong affinity toward nature and the energy which flows through it.

"The idea for Wilder came to me last winter. Everything was changing around me but I realised I felt more connected to myself than ever. In that moment, I made a promise to be 'Wilder'; to trust my intuition and to be true to myself."
