Drawing from my architecture training and practice, I truly believe the logic of beauty is embedded in every form of art creations as the critical role of golden ratio in ancient Creek architecture. I envision my creative life as an everlasting journey to search and perfect my golden ratio.

about the aritst: Sophia Hu is an architectural designer and jewelry artist. She was born and grew up in Beijing, China, studied and has been working in the United States since 1995 as an architect. In 2011 she started her adventure in silversmithing. Perhaps by fate, as she has moved away from architecture for a new career and advanced in her skills as a silversmith, more and more architectural features have appeared in her work. Sterling silver, gold, and other natural materials are her new "building materials" in these small-scale sculptures. As a mixed-medium artist, she's never afraid to explore new materials in order to discover their unexpected characters. To her, jewelry design and making is an extension of herself and the world around her. Space, shadow and geometric aesthetics play important roles in her jewelry design. Each design is hand crafted from scratch with love and soul in her studio, 6shadows, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

story behind 6shadows:  When Sophia and her architect husband, Bin, used to work in their architecture studio back in Dallas, Texas, neighbors often joked about the "two shadows" cast on their windows when they stayed up late to meet projects deadlines. So they named their architecture studio "2shadows". When Sophia named her jewelry studio, she simply added her lucky number, 6, to "shadows".
