Kerchung is Karen Cheung - illustrator, artist, passionate maker and curious learner. She wishes she could swear more in front of her kids but fears it would be mostly directed towards them. She suffers from occasional rage and bad language which have inspired her line of reversible jewellery.
Each piece of Kerchung jewellery is carefully crafted by hand, infused with tongue-in-cheek humour and laced with a vicious edge. Porcelain clay is wrestled into shape, fired and sanded, decorated by the most patient hands, glazed and fired again. Those with 22k gold lustre detail are decorated and fired a third time, making each piece a labour of love and one of a kind. Slight imperfections are part of the charm of this collection, and reflect the handmade nature of our products.
We also offer hand-built, wheel thrown and slip cast pottery, all created by Karen in her tiny shed in the garden. She is always slipping and sliding on a learning curve.
Please do not wear your Kerchung jewellery in the bath or shower. Take care not to knock the porcelain piece against hard surfaces - high fired porcelain is one of the most durable of clays, but please don’t take your anger out on it. Very fine chain is susceptible to tangling, so store your necklaces carefully in their original packaging or hang up.
