CHERRY CHAU 's biography

Cherry Chau's dynamic and engaging founder and designer Cherry says she finds her imaginative designs - from cut glass crystals and semi-precious stones combined with tulle, silver or leather to velvet flowers and feathered butterflies - 'enable a woman to express her personality and transform her moods!' She treasures her reputation for creating accessories that are at once wearable, fun and exquisite but above all unique.

Her eclectic work reflects her exotic travels and adventures in creativity, ranging from glass blowing in Venice to blacksmithing in Tennessee. Her cultural influences are diverse: born in Hong Kong, Cherry now divides her time between her company base in Paris and her husband's ancestral castle in Normandy.

Cherry studied French language and literature at Lausanne in Switzerland at 16. She then attended the London College of Fashion, taking extra classes in millinery and embroidery. Cherry first began jewellery-making at Camden Arts Centre and has been pursuing this instinctive talent ever since.

Since launching in 1992, her brand has achieved global recognition and yet unassuming Cherry describes her attitude as 'happy-go-lucky' and laughs 'I have never had any business sense!'. Her more characteristic designs include tiaras, necklaces, and brooches.

Cherry presents in her Cherry Chau shops her own creations as well as her selection of the best designs she has scouted all over the world. As a result Cherry Chau shops are the perfect place to snap up dazzling feather and lace accessories, diamante clips, delicate beaded combs, blooming hair bands, intricate tiaras and a covetable selection of jewellery fashioned from semi-precious stones guaranteeing the best dressed clientele!
