OUR STORY

THE BRAND

Sara Chyan graduated from the renowned Royal College of Art's Jewellery & Metal programme, London, in 2017. Sara was born in Hong Kong and 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.
