Cherry Liang is an aspiring jewellery designer, who recently graduated from OCAD University’s material arts and design program with a major in jewellery/metalsmithing. Her work takes inspiration from the clean lines of the art deco style, as well as the organic forms seen in nature. Aside from Cherry’s customary streamlined jewellery, her recent work consists of natural forms and alternative materials. She enjoys creating one-of-a-kind wearables and sculptural jewellery pieces, which gives an individual’s attire a charming appeal. She seeks to create unique hand-made body adornments that will bring a sincere smile to individuals wearing her pieces.

“I have always been passionate about being creative. Working as a fashion designer fulfilled me in many creative ways, allowing me to play with different materials, change shapes, and create forms. Then one day, while at a fashion show, a little pair of cufflinks caught my eye and fascinated me more than clothing. Ever since then, designing and creating jewellery with the flow, movement, and rhythm that dance together with the body and clothes became my dream.”
