Chi Cheng Lee

"My passion is making art from raw materials into something beautiful and functional, the magic of making jewelry that gives the wearer the self-confidence and self-expression of individuality. My design philosophy is simple elegance with a twist that one can wear any day any time."

A lifetime of cross-cultural experience represents the inspiration for jeweler Chi Cheng Lee's work. Born in Taiwan, Chi Cheng Lee grew up in the New York area and lived in Hong Kong before settling in Vancouver. Chi has been exposed to a rich variety of art cultures, architecture and natural wonders. Her work has the underlining theme of East meets West. Combining Eastern traditional design sensibilities and Western modern boundaries, Chi creates objects that adorn the body with an inherent balance and harmony.

Chi combines cast elements and hand-fabricated parts to produce unique designs. The filigree-like scribble textured surfaces and the nesting wire forms are accented with delicate pearls. Chi emphasizes modern elegance with the delicacy of simple lines and forms.

Chi graduated with honors from Parsons School of Design in New York in Metals and Jewelry Design. She spent many years working and studying with masters, as well as years of working in the different aspects of the jewelry industry. She has taken the long road back to doing what she loves to do, making these little pieces of wearable art.
