I design and make Dorothy Cheng Jewelry pieces with my own two hands. I use mostly sterling silver (for its soft shine and ability to pair well with anything) and brass (for its evocative, antique look). Sometimes I throw in some semi-precious gems and pearls for color and texture.

Craftsmanship is very important to me, as someone who has a reverence for the long history of craft and its various traditions. Every Dorothy Cheng Jewelry piece will be made with careful attention to detail and quality.
