Chin Teo

In 2009 Chin Teo founded his eponymous label in England, where he continues to handcraft contemporary jewelry for men. A self-described artisan jeweler, Teo applies traditional silversmith techniques to his craft, lending his pieces a slightly medieval aesthetic which evokes a bold, raw, and emotive approach to jewelry for men. A series of impossibly twisted sterling silver lines form an expressive take on the band ring, while textured oxidized sterling silver bands appear as though carved from natural stone. Inspired by natural elements and childhood memories, Teo’s collection of jewelry is informed by a deeply reflective and intimate energy. Chain-link bracelets and necklaces with convertible spring-ring fastening and abnormal link sizes look and feel as though they’ve been refurbished from chain mail armour. Thick metal lays a hard foundation for textured pieces that showcase a minimal, yet fluid aesthetic. Refreshing, natural and expressive- this jewelry collection of powerfully built pieces for men represents Teo’s masterful ability to manipulate stone and silver into textural anomalies for the hand.
