Carrie K. Artisan Jewellery marries artisan-crafted jewellery with playfully provocative design to challenge traditional notions of what makes something precious and desired. Their jewellery tells stories that celebrate the beauty of imperfection and marvel at the mundane in everyday life. They take the time and care to handcraft meaningful, covetable, little loves that will be valued for a long time. Carrie K. Artisan Jewellery’s collections are aimed at men and women with an individual sense of style and those who want to inject some playfulness into their life.
A former managing director of an international advertising agency, Carolyn Kan took a year off the corporate race to travel. She had an epiphany when she was learning to silversmith in Florence and Carrie K. Artisan Jewellery was created in July 2009. Just a year later, in 2010, she won ELLE Awards “Jewellery Designer of the Year”. This helped catapult Carrie K. from a successful Singapore jewellery label into an international export label.
Our philosophy is best articulated through the words of Dr Seuss, who said, “I like nonsense- it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope…and that enables you to laugh at all of life’s realities.– Carolyn Kan
When Disney approached Carrie K. to work with them, it felt like a match made in heaven.– Carolyn Kan
