Post Magazine, SCMP, May 12, 2013, P44: "Behind the label: Carmen Chan Jewelry"

Who started it? Born and raised in Hong Kong, Carmen Chan took an astute, if unconventional, detour into the world of jewellery by studying economics, marketing and corporate communications. She launched her eponymous line this year, applying her business skills to a passion for bling.

Why we love it: upon first glance, Chan's concoctions seem like mere hipster whimsy; but appearances can be deceiving. This is a highly personal collection, with the designer taking inspiration from sources as diverse as Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Chuck Palahniuk and her hometown. That all adds up to singular designs that stand out in the overprocessed world of accessories.

What we'd recommend: Chan's debut collection, A Sweet Escape, is a series of necklaces influenced by exotic Asian and Native American designs. We like the Turquoise Bird Let's Dance necklace (above right; HK$2,380), a bright and fun piece that blends white agates, moonstone, Swarovski crystals and feathers. We're also into the Indiana Girl Let's Play (above left; HK$2,180), which is a little more refined, with its use of red jade, yellow quartz, shells and sterling-silver pendants. From her latest Messenger collection, the Feel ring in sterling silver (below; HK$980) stands out for its subtlety.

Hong Kong Fashion Geek: "Caught My Eye: Carmen Chan Jewelry"

Caught My Eye: Carmen Chan Jewelry

Was recently introduced to Carmen Chan Jewellery, a new jewellery brand that was launched earlier this year. While there isn't much variety in terms of designs as of yet, I do think the pieces have promise and I quite like the Messenger Collection (the ring above for example which is sterling silver plated with rose gold.) Carmen's debut collection, A Sweep Escape, is very tribalesque and what I like about the necklaces is that if you look at the clasp, she's incorporated messages into the necklaces. Her pieces retails for about HK$1180 for rings to HK$2380 for the necklaces. Looking forward to see what she comes up with next.

I Made This: Hong Kong Designers Show and Tell
“Feel Love” ring
Carmen Chan, Carmen Chan Jewelry

Carmen Chan is an exciting new arrival on the scene. But it’s not her vibrant, colorful, chunky statement necklaces (above) that are her favorite design: instead it’s a ring with a purpose.

The history:
“Jewelry reflects attitude or character. I designed the ring to carry the message “Feel Love” [the other ring in the series says “Live Life”] so the wearer can carry the message as a small reminder, or an aspiration, every day. To me, it’s more than just a piece of jewelry—it’s also a method of self-reflection.”

Why do it here?
“I was born and raised in Hong Kong. Most of us are trying far too hard to be better, faster or bigger. Sometimes we forget to treat ourselves well and to live the life we want. I came up with this hoping we can carry positivity and gratitude in their daily lives.”

On HK design:
“It’s a wonderful city with so many emerging designers and artists; and many from elsewhere come to develop their brand. The atmosphere
is encouraging and nurtures ideas.”

“Feel Love” ring, $1,180 from www.carmenchanjewelry.com.
