OWNER AND MAKER

Owner and creator of Fipper Designs, Fannie Ip, had a strong interest in jewelry ever since she was a teen and finally decided to take it seriously later in her professional career. She studied at Kristin Hanson Fine Jewelry School in New York City under several Master Jewelers from prestigious jewelry companies. She currently produces her work at the Brooklyn Metal Works studio while designing and continues to perfect the techniques for her jewelry. 


PHILOSOPHY

Making jewelry is a continuous learning experience. She is passionate in discovering and experimenting with different techniques to construct her pieces. She truly enjoys the actual process of making the jewelry itself. The hammering, soldering, shaping…  And when a piece is finished, it is such a wonderful feeling knowing that she started with a slab of metal and ended up with a piece of beautiful wearable art.
