Dickson Yewn is the founder and creative director of jewellery brand YEWN. Ever since childhood, he has felt an especially strong affinity with Chinese arts and culture. Since 1995, capitalizing on his fine arts training, he has created many extraordinary jewellery pieces for his elite clients, drawing inspiration from Chinese arts and culture and transforming a centuries-old tradition into modern, wearable, contemporary Chinese art.
Dickson Yewn studied at Sorbonne in Paris before gaining a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa, Canada and studying jewellery design and photography in New York. His conceptual jewellery store “Life of Circle” was selected by Forbes Magazine in 2005 as one of the top 25 stores in the world, winning the category for jewellery store among other brand names including Hermès and Ralph Lauren. In 2011, YEWN became the first Chinese luxury jewellery brand chosen by American First Lady, Michelle Obama, who wore YEWN’s iconic Chinese lattice jadeite ring.
Dickson Yewn’s creations have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide.
