Sophie Ratner was born and raised in New York City. At a young age she took comfort in drawing and painting, fully committing herself to becoming an artist, though not knowing how that commitment would play itself out. It was not until she took her first jewelry course at the Rhode Island School of Design that Sophie recognized the connection between her own creative impulses and the emotional responses of people who love beautiful objects. The realization that she had the ability to make objects that could both adorn and be treasured drew Sophie to jewelry as an art form and as a vocation.
