SoCoDivka Designs offers a line of one-of-a-kind and very limited edition, handmade jewelry made from antique, heirloom, estate, and vintage materials as well as modern and vintage-inspired finds — inspired by mid-century modern, ’50s Lucite, Bakelite, Celluloid, Bohemia, and whimsy. SoCoDivka Designs was founded in Austin, Texas, in 2009, by Shanna Pharis.
Jewelry is a natural fit as a way to express my creativity– it’s one of the things I have loved and collected my whole life, beginning with a childhood love of my Czech grandmother’s costume jewelry and playing in my mother’s jewelry box. In my childhood, friendship bracelets made from embroidery floss were all the craze and I made dozens and dozens, and in college, I learned to weave natural hemp fibers and made necklaces and bracelets to share with friends.
“SoCo” comes from the South Congress area of Austin, where I have lived for many years, and “Dívka” is a Czech word for “girl” or “gal.”
I absolutely love creating custom orders, so please contact me, and we can discuss creating the perfect piece for you!
Creating jewelry is one of my creative outlets, along with filmmaking and web design. You can learn more about me at www.shannapharis.com or find my and my husband’s Super 8 wedding film & videography company at www.nostalgiafilm.com and video production and web development at www.pharisproductions.com.
