Tina Tang

Tina Tang is a jewelry designer who loves to make stuff with her hands. Oh, and she also loves handbags, pecan pie, opera, and techies.

Hailing from the suburbs of Maryland from Chinese immigrant parents who wanted her to be a scientist, doctor or something "responsible" that guaranteed a paycheck. Being the good girl that she was, Tina did what her mom and dad wanted, got a college degree from the University of Chicago and went to work in finance as an equities trader. Five years later, after feeling like her soul was shriveling, Tina left her job and returned to her first instinct and love: making stuff with her hands.

That's how Tina Tang Jewelry came to life. She makes all her jewelry in New York City.
