Betsey Sook – Poetic Jewelry is founded by Betsey Sook – a Copenhagen-based art historian, writer and jewelry designer, born in the lush, green mountains of South Korea.
Betsey has always been attracted to feminine luxury and exquisite beauty. As a student, she meticulously investigated the shapes of Art Deco and the colors and brushwork in French Impressionism at the famed Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Later, she worked as a writer, specializing in one-to-one interviews with A-list celebrities, ranging from pop diva Beyoncé and “Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to cinema icons such as Academy Award winner Susanne Bier and winner of Cannes Palme d’Or Zhang Yimou.
Betsey’s incredible eye for beauty and aesthetics has earned her editorial space as an expert writer for nationwide publications such as Politiken and Eurowoman, The National Danish Film Institute, ARKEN – Museum for Modern Art, KOSMORAMA - University of Copenhagen and KVINFO – Ministry of Culture Denmark.
But designing fine jewelry for women all over the world is her true passion.
“It’s so positive, so inspiring – almost blissful – to make women feel beautiful and special in a way that only fine jewelry can make them feel. Precious jewelry is love in a tangible form. A gift from the heart that can last a lifetime.”
