His beautiful jewelry art is sold at auctions and exhibited in the best museums, and hunted by collectors.
Chan makes his things with the addition of titanium gold items.

Not every jeweler can boast ability to work with it.

As a representative of the Chinese art, I hope to bring to the world the essence of Eastern philosophy and Chinese culture. My jewelry is designed to initiate a fruitful dialogue between cultures”, says Wallace Chan famous jewelry designer.
