‘It is perhaps slightly rebellious, a part tongue-in-cheek approach to fine jewellery that the jewels I create are not so much about the grandeur and preciousness of the stones; but the value and beauty in design and the incredible craftsmanship of our human hands, in unison with the wonders of our creative minds.’
Anabela Chan is a London and Paris-based award-winning jewellery designer and artist, who graduated from the world-renowned Royal College of Art in 2013 with 5 prestiguous awards.
Through an alchemy of natural, precious and man-made materials, Anabela combines elegant sculptural forms with dream-like romanticism and thought-provoking narratives, to create unique jewels and treasures that can be handed down the generations.
Every piece of Anabela Chan jewels is hand-crafted at her atelier using the finest craftsmanship in haute joaillerie; combining her love affair with gemstones and an obsession to detail and perfection to create magical jewels of infinite colours and sparkle.ù
Born into 4 generations of film directors and cinematographers, Anabela finds her inspirations from her extensive travels to the exotic and the orient; collecting gems and treasures along the way from local markets, nature and the intriguing people she meets.
Originally trained as an architect and a specialist in print and embroidery design, Anabela worked with Lord Richard Rogers, and was a Fashion Print & Embroidery Designer for Alexander McQueen and AllSaints in London for 7 years before returning to jewellery to launch her eponymous label in November 2013.
‘I want to create magical, fun and fabulous jewels that tell stories.
My pieces combine the timeless craftsmanship and allure of high jewellery with a modern day wearability, and a joyful playfulness reminiscence of our childhood dreams. It is about offering inspiring, beautifully-crafted jewels with longevity; works of art that are worn, loved and treasured forever.’
