In 2022, Soo's deep reverence for marine creatures and commitment to environmental conservation was evident in her new line, which pays tribute to endangered sea turtles with a portion of each sale donated to their preservation.
Soo's passion for her craft and dedication to the natural world has earned her recognition from industry experts such as the Women's Jewelry Association and De Beers. She was also selected to participate in The Jewelry Loupe Project 2022 cohort and invited as one of the exhibitors in The Design Collective JCK Pavilion at the JCK Vegas show 2023.
