VIVI SUN JEWELRY
“The jewelry form is more interesting than painting because people can wear it every day.”—Vivi Sun
Vivi Sun has been making jewelry for most of her life. Trained as a painter and sculptor, she treats each piece she creates as a work of art. Her intuitive approach to color, texture and form produces jewelry as unique and expressive as the women who wear it.
Vibrant color and strong design distinguish Vivi Sun’s work from other fine handmade jewelry. To create the signature look of her work, Vivi draws upon her painting background, experimenting with color combinations until she discovers the right hue for each design. Vivi draws upon her sculpture background to craft both organic and geometric shapes from the finest jewelry-grade resin. In her work, color and form come to life through the medium of jewelry. Each Vivi Sun piece is a wearable work of art.
In Vivi Sun’s hands, everyday objects are transformed into delightful, one-of-a-kind pieces that are both elegant and easy to wear. Her most popular collection, Frozen Time, features layers of colored resin and recycled watch parts. The Candy, Color and Composition collections include seashells, tiny glass marbles and even cake-decorating sprinkles. In each carefully crafted piece, intricate parts come together to create texture, movement—and delight.
A native of Taiwan raised in a family of architects, Vivi Sun showed an aptitude for art at young age. At 15, she was accepted into one of the most prestigious art schools in her country. After finishing three years of intensive art training, Vivi Sun relocated to New York, where she earned Associate of Applied Science degrees in both Fine Arts and Jewelry Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Jewelry Studio from Montclair State University. She founded Vivi Sun Jewelry in 2007.
As Studio Director, Vivi Sun designs each piece of jewelry herself and closely oversees production. There’s nothing she likes more than pleasing her customers, who have helped name her collections and works such as the Sun Storm series. Vivi’s customers participate in the jewelry-making process by requesting custom-made pieces using family heirloom watches and other objects.
