hello and welcome to atelier yan
A home-based studio filled with one of a kind flower headdress and vintage-inspired modern jewelry.
My name is Yan. I'm just a big girl who loves to create things with hands, loves to dress up myself in Lolita Fashion, loves to explore this beautiful world. I am glad that I have this opportunity to share my passionate journal through Atelier Yan.
I was raised in Beijing and grew up with Chinese culture. After high school, I lived in Winnipeg for years. I have a Culinary Art and Design Diploma and currently studying for a Bachelor's Degree in Design (major in Material Art and Design: Jewellery + minor in Photography) at OCAD University in downtown Toronto, Canada.
classic inspired modern designs
As a designer, I prefer to work with natural materials rather than synthetic materials because I treasure the relationship between humans and nature. I also carefully experiment with multiple materials samples before the final design as I understand how good texture can improve the whole user experience.

Continuing adventures with my lovely cats...
wait...do you allergic to cats
As I mentioned earlier, Atelier Yan is a home-based studio.
I have two separate rooms functioning as a creative workspace and a walk-in closet.
I also live with four adopted cats. Neither of them is allowed to enter those separate rooms, but this situation might be dangerous for those who have allergic to cats.
Your safety and health is the top priority.
Please consider this factor before making any purchase. Thank you for your understanding!
However, if you like cats,
