Jonathan Yun is a jeweler/artist based in Penang, Malaysia. He graduated from RMIT Australia majoring in fine metals. He has won several international jewelry awards and had participated in various exhibitions and fashion showcases. Nature has been one of his passions and he is a certified divemaster as well as a fern collector.
Jonathan works mainly in silver as he finds the soft patina of silver fascinating and alluring. He works from his studio where each piece of jewelry is painstakingly sculpted out in jewelers wax and then casted out in sterling silver. Then the piece is hand finished and polished to reflect its beauty.
In 2008, he started his atelier in the heritage enclave of Georgetown, where he designs and crafts the various collections such as Coral Ocean Range which is dedicated to the underwater world and Eden Range which is inspired by botanical plants. In 2015, Jonathan opened another boutique that is dedicated to the Peranakan Culture which he came from. Presently he is working on 2 different and exciting ranges which he hopes to launch soon.
