Sandy Hyun

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Sandy Hyun developed a keen interest in jewelry, ranging from her mother’s vintage pieces from Korea to the African bead store down the street. At a young age, Sandy developed a love for the sparkling allure of gemstones and could always be found taking apart and refashioning old jewelry.

While studying at the University of Iowa, she was the sole jewelry designer for an upscale boutique at which she also worked as a sales representative. Upon graduating with a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Iowa she made her way to New York City, where she began building a large client base and selling her jewelry to boutiques throughout Manhattan.

Her influences are reflected in elegant one-of-a-kind pieces, drawn from her extensive background in art, music, design and worldwide travels. An organic eminence teamed with quality materials adds to her innovative designs. “Jewelry making has always served as an expressive outlet, and also provides a meditative function for me.” Sandy Hyun’s collections and critical success continues to expand; her works can also be found in various trade and consumer publications.

Sandy Hyun’s pieces are handcrafted with the utmost precision and attention to detail, using only the best quality stones and metals. She mixes the clean lines of Italian 14kt gold filled draping chains to balance stone combinations of Peruvian opals, baby sapphires, and sparkling, faceted aquamarines to create not only functional but also unique and timeless pieces to which the stylish woman will find herself returning time and again.
