Sara Chyan graduated from the renowned Royal College of Art's Jewellery & Metal programme, London, in 2017. Sara is now based in London and has established an eponymous jewellery brand.
Sara Chyan's works adopt a minimalistic and conceptual approach; she draws on a wide range of subjects in a multi-layered manner and likes to involve the viewer physically at times.
She believes that her works respond directly to the human body and the surrounding environment, and how the wearer engages with it is integral to her art form. As an artist, Sara's everyday experiences and activities serve as a starting point for her creations.
Sara Chyan has won numerous international awards and has been featured in several high-profile magazines. Her collection, 'Emotional Jewellery' has been showcased by multiple magazines, such as British Vogue Italia, Craft, Aesthetica, and Frow.
She was the finalist of Cheongju International Craft Competition 2019. In 2018, she won the Industart Award for the jewellery category in the Ukrainian International Industry Award and the Bronze A' Design Award for the jewellery, eyewear and watch design category in the Italian International Design Award.
In 2017, she was the 1st runner up of The Beau Han Xu Beau Cut TM Swarovski Award. She won The Buzz Award in the Hong Kong Fine Art Prize 2014. She was the Champion of young designers (under 30) in the Diamanti Per Tutti(DPT) diamond accessory design competition the following year.
Sara has also collaborated with several internationally renowned fashion designers on accessories that perfectly complement their collections - organising exhibitions at London, Paris, and Shanghai Fashion Week.
With London as her base, she considers the world to be her destination, regularly participating in international exhibitions and continually developing her creations.
