Vanessa Chan, founder & designer of PURSUITS, draws her inspiration from design, architecture, and fashion. She earned her bachelor degree in interior design in the United Kingdom and worked for years as a designer in Canada before launching PURSUITS in 2014. Her background in interior architecture has deeply influenced her jewellery designs, and traces of her past career can been seen in the playful way she approaches composition and geometry. Her passion and desire to create pushes her to experiment with new materials: exploring combinations of surface and shape and their potential as wearable art.
The designs are made with mix of materials. The majority of collections are brass finished with different kinds of plating (metal parts) or coating (color parts). Pieces that are finished with a colored coating are made with a process similar to powder coating and heat treatment. This finish is very durable and unlikely to chip through daily wear and tear.
