It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to the awesome designs of an incredibly gifted jewelry artist, teacher and my first born, Chanda Champagne. She specializes in metals and resides in the San Francisco Bay area. Chanda has been creating breathtaking wearable art for over thirty years. I am convinced it is because in our family, art is in our DNA.
Chanda describes her work as earthy, and spiritual, made for today's contemporary woman. I describe it as amazing. Long before I started making jewelry she was creating beautiful miniature works of art and calling them earrings.
She starts with thin light weight sheets of aluminum, copper, brass, and silver. She then hand cuts, the shapes she wants and meticulously hammers, etches, and polishes each piece creating designs that are chic, glamorous, and timeless.
My clients that have seen her work have asked me repeatedly why I don't have more of her earrings. So, (drum roll) I am happy to announce that as of this week I am now carrying a collection of her earrings in my studio. I am pleased to take this opportunity to present pieces from Chanda's Collection.
At the end of the day It is after all a family affair.
