Based in New York City, Irene Cheung strives to design jewelry pieces with clean, simple lines that make a statement by using a "less is more" aesthetic. She earned a degree in Jewelry Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.
Her jewelry is modern looking, but she regularly draws from lovely, classic forms and lines. Each sterling silver piece is handworked by the designer who draws her inspiration from her travels. She's gathered ideas for her pieces from her experiences in cities and locations like Barcelona,, the Australian Outback, Cinque Terre, Santorini, and Iguazu Falls, as well as her native New York City. She proudly uses recycled materials in her pieces whenever possible.
