The accessories that Sophie Hughes forges from sheets of recycled silver and gold in her South End studio are all one-of-a-kind. One thing her necklaces have in common, however, is that they drape beautifully. â€śI donâ€™t want to create something thatâ€™s very sculptural and cool-looking off the body and then not have it fall right when itâ€™s being worn,â€ť Hughes says. The style world has taken note: The local clothing line Emerson recently sent models peacocking down the runway in Hughesâ€™s jewelry at New York Fashion Week.
