The collections of handmade freshwater pearl jewellery from Christy Art Zimmer are elegant and simple, with a noticeable artistic aura. Under brand Christy’s Pearls, the traditional art of genuine pearl making is combined into unique designs with a modern and chic look. Based in Basel, Switzerland and originally from Shanghai in China, creative artist and jewellery designer Christy Peng started working with pearls back in 2011. She is now a skilled expert in the cultivation, geography and characteristics in pearls, and manages to transform the traditional craft of pearl making into modern-day handmade necklaces, brooches, bracelets and earrings.
