Simple Sustainable Style

About A Considered Life

Hello, I'm Sophie

I'm a writer, jeweller, and plant collector based in Birmingham, UK. I've been writing about simple living, sustainable style, and slow travel for ten years; documenting my life as a creative freelancer exploring eco-friendly habits and minimalist living.

I was born on the Kent coast in a tiny village but the place I call home has been in the West Midlands for several years now. While I live in Birmingham and love city life, I travel around for work and to explore quieter places to visit with my partner and our dog.

I run the jewellery brand Oh My Clumsy Heart, making affordable eco-friendly jewellery from my Jewellery Quarter studio. I started the business in 2012, after the frustrating realisation that high quality jewellery that is affordable, made to last, and eco-conscious was nearly impossible to find.

This was my springboard into ethical fashion leading me to quit fast fashion, learn about environmental issues, and become a freelance writer and full-time jeweller. I now have over a decade of experience building capsule wardrobes and packing lists to create more outfits from less clothes.
