Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Sandy Hyun developed a keen interest in jewelry, ranging from her mother’s vintage pieces from Korea to the African bead store down the street. At a young age, Sandy developed a love for the sparkling allure of gemstones and could always be found refashioning old jewelry and taking crystals from her family's chandelier to wear around the house.
While studying art at the University of Iowa, she became the sole jewelry designer for an upscale boutique at which she also worked as a sales representative. Upon graduating with a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Iowa she made her way to New York City, where she began building a large client base and selling her jewelry to boutiques throughout Manhattan.
Sandy's influences are reflected in her edgy yet elegant one-of-a-kind pieces, drawn from an extensive background in art, music, design and worldwide travels. An organic eminence teamed with quality materials adds to her innovative designs. Sandy Hyun’s collections and critical success continues to expand; her work is currently carried at numerous fashion forward high end boutiques and department stores such as Fenwick in London, Henri Bendel in New York City and Takashimaya in Tokyo. Her jewelry has been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Lucky and In Style Magazine.
