“Beauty lay not in the thing, but in what the thing symbolised.” - Thomas Hardy

Hello!

My name is Anny and I am Taiwanese-Canadian - born in Taiwan and raised in North America. My passion is discovering more about the Taiwanese Indigenous culture, a culture that holds immense meaning behind their dance, music, language, and artwork, which has been lost due to the impact of colonization. Every few years I get the chance to go back to Taiwan and there is no doubt the “Formosa” culture has shaped the person I am today. Each time I visit I find myself fascinated with the history, geography, and especially the people that make up this beautiful island.

My aim is to create jewelry that holds deeper meaning and purpose to the wearer. I also want to share the beauty of Taiwanese indigenous culture through their art and stories by combining their sacred artworks with stones from nature.

Portions of the sales proceeds goes towards non-profit organizations serving indigenous communities in Taiwan as well as the indigenous communities in Vancouver, British Columbia (the ancestral occupied Coast Salish territories of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Nations), a place where I am grateful to call home.

Each Piece of my Jewelry Includes:
- A glass bead handcrafted by the Paiwan tribe who live among the beautiful mountain regions of Taiwan and purchased fair-trade directly from the artists themselves.
- Genuine, all-natural crystals that have been personally hand-picked.
- Purification through sage cleansing prior to shipment.
- A small donation that supports indigenous communities through programs such as the Atayal Fundraising Campaign (https://www.atayal.org/fundraiser.php)

“Alingato!” - Thank You in Amis Language.
