Born in what is now Beijing, China, her childhood was filled with artistic endeavors that fueled her inquisitive spirit and pushed her to explore the larger world. Arriving in the United States after her university studies, she brought her artistic sensibilities to the world of jewelry, gaining several industry certifications along the way. Today, every piece of Sharon Wei’s jewelry expresses her adventurous cross–cultural experience and excitement about the possibilities of the moment.
Sharon Wei captures in classic and contemporary designs the beauty, complexity, and unique qualities of every woman. She combines the tradition of her native ancient Chinese culture with the fashion forward western styling in a way no other designer can. Her use of freshwater pearls from China as the foundation for her designs is an homage to her native culture, and her direct and personal relationship with the best Chinese pearl farms gives her hand–picked access to a wide variety of the highest quality pearls. The result is a fresh interpretation of pearl jewelry design that fits perfectly into the modern American wardrobe.
