Chicago native Sandy Hyun had always been drawn to her mother’s vintage jewelry collection, developing an interest in jewelry construction at the age of 12. Mainly self taught Sandy moved to New York City and traveled around Asia for a year. She launched her jewelry collection using treasures she collected during her travels and her line was picked up by Anna Sui, Henri Bendel, Calypso and a number of other established New York City institutions. Her materials include mixing fine Italian leather, rare vintage chains and crystals, semiprecious stones, and early 20th century German glass. All materials are ethically sourced, made to order and plated in the US and handmade by female artisans in NYC.
