WHAT? Carmen Chan Jewellery specialises in whimsical handcrafted pieces using quirky items like brightly coloured stones and feathers.
WHO? Founder and designer Carmen Chan left the corporate world to indulge her passion for crafting jewellery from scratch. Inspired by the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, as well as books, astronomy and inspirational quotes, she launched her own line earlier this year. “Crafting jewellery from scratch is like making art – every craft is beautifully surprising,” she said.“ My designs reflect a person's true self, in attitude and state of mind. When I decided to create my own brand, I want to create not just a product but a state of mind, and to make a statement.”
MOST-WANTED Rings in 18-carat yellow gold plate or sterling silver from the Messenger collection. Sayings like ‘Feel love’ or ‘love life’ speak to the wearer in adorable cursive handwriting.
