Cindy Chao The Art Jewel
Sunday, March 17

Cindy Chao, the granddaughter of an architect and the daughter of a sculptor, had an upbringing that was immersed in an extraordinary and vibrant creative environment.

Cindy established her eponymous brand CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel by opening its first showroom in 2004, motivated by a desire to break boundaries and redefine high jewellery. She believes that every piece of fine jewellery should be a miniature work of art. As a creator she is dedicated to using the classic 18th century artisan technique of crafting designs in wax (cire perdu) before completing these intricate sculptures with precious metal and gemstones.

TEFAF spoke with Cindy Chao on her philosophy and work.
