Whether you’re going minimalist or spectacular, this is jewellery for those who pride themselves on being a little bit different.
Each piece is crafted by Sydney jeweller, Fairina Cheng. Combining traditional processes with a contemporary outlook, you’ll find striking statement pieces that cross boundaries and defy expectations.
Every design is created with the attitude that in jewellery – just as in life – there are no rules. Adornments are made using traditional hand skills, 3D printing technologies, precious metals and unique, sometimes unexpected, materials. Gemstones are angled, bezels are offset and key features are hidden until closer inspection.
Fairina had always admired people who could work with their hands. But she never thought that she would be one of them.
She graduated from university and entered the corporate world – meetings, deadlines, early starts and late nights. But an offhand decision to take an evening jewellery course sparked a lightbulb moment that changed everything.
Fairina picked up her first jewellers’ saw in a small Sydney workshop, and fell in love. After just one week, she had made a commitment to pursue jewellery design as a career.
But this is not a stock standard jewellery label. And Fairina is not a stock standard jewellery designer.
Sitting between the artistic and the commercial, Fairina combines creative skills and technical knowhow to create jewellery that is well-made, with a twist of something special.
