Hong Kong Talent: Carmen Chan Jewellery

For some time, I kept seeing the same quirky-handcrafted-looking-jewellery across Facebook and Hong Kong social media. As a jewellery lover always keen to wear emerging Hong Kong design, the unique style of the jewellery really caught my attention. Delightfully – the talent behind the Jewellery – turned out to be a good friend of mine from my days’ in business school. Who said creactivity and business doesn’t go together?

Dubbed by Time Out Hong Kong as “One new designer who you’ll want to keep your eye on“, Carmen Chan Jewellery was launched in February 2013 – finally fulfilling Carmen’s lifelong dream to start up her own brand to share her dreamland in jewellery. The DNA of the brand is a mixture of sophistication and over-the-top creativity; each piece of jewellery is handcrafted in Hong Kong with unconventional mix of quality materials such as natural stones, feathers, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver, 18K gold etc.

Learning the craft from goldsmith artisans, Carmen has kept herself very busy and launched three collections since the inception of the brand. The debut collection, “A Sweet Escape”, the popular Messenger Collection” and most recently, a series of rings with the wording “J’aime. Moi.”(meaning “I Love. Me.” in French), co-designed together with fashion blogger Valerie Soh. “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.”
