Dyme Designs is a family-owned business that specializes in wire-wrapped jewelry and crystal art. Our pieces are inspired by our Chinese heritage, philosophy and nature. We create and sell handmade wire-wrapped jewelry and crystal art while my father is a metalsmith and creates beautiful statement pieces. We use 14k gold filled, sterling silver or rose gold filled to create wire-wrapped jewelry with precious and semi precious gems and crystals. Our jewelry and crystal art are made with love and intention, and wire wrapped with precious stones and metals. My father first started his jewelry business 35 years ago, and I joined the business to continue our family legacy of telling cultural stories through our art. Art and storytelling are ways that help us connect, build community, and stay connected to our cultural roots.
Behind the Brand
The business first launched over thirty years ago, when the family traveled across the states to sell jewelry in art shows. Jade Chan, the daughter now leading the business, spends her time in Seattle's Chinatown, studying Asian art and graphic designing. With the business’ recent transformation and rebranding, she continues to create jewelry with her family to build timeless pieces that tellstories of nostalgia and culture.
