With the mind of an architect and the hands of a sculptor, Chao established CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel in 2004 with the determination to create every piece of jewellery as a miniature work of art.
At the forefront of a new era of jewellery making, Cindy Chao is changing its landscape.
Chao’s jewelled masterpieces exist within a rarefied space often reserved for centuries-old jewellery maisons, as they sit behind glass pedestals of world-class museums and international exhibitions, set records at prestigious auction houses, and are collected by some of the world’s most discerning jewellery connoisseurs.
Trained by a grandfather who was a renowned architect, and a father who was an established sculptor, Chao possesses a profound understanding of the creative process. Chao was her father’s first apprentice, from whom she learned various intricate techniques and skills of sculpting. It was her father’s words that shaped her own distinct style: “life and emotion are the core essences of a sculpture.”
