Because love creates miracles. It can change the world to make it a better place for everyone to live in.
I'm Trang Dai Nguyen, the jeweler behind TDN Creations. My jewelry is the expression of these beliefs. They are little tokens of love given to you to make you feel and look wonderful inside and out so you too can change your world!
Here’s my story:
I’ve always been a creative person, trying out all kind of crafts from an early age (painting on silk, sewing cute felt creatures, sculpting polymer clay...). and I love to experiment with different materials and techniques.
After completing a Master’s Degree in management and foreign languages, I was going to settle for an office job in the corporate world. However, my creative side never left me. And after a while, I just couldn’t see myself working at a desk for the next 35 years.
One day, a friend asked me to make her a pendant out of polymer clay. That’s how I started making jewelry and I loved it! I also saw a great opportunity to start my own business, doing what I loved to do!
I researched the internet to see how I could take my technical skills to the next level and found EMSOM, a school in Montreal that had a full time jewelry making program of more than 1800 hours. That was perfect for me!
I quit my day job when I began the jewelry courses, and by the time I graduated, I had opened an Etsy shop to sell my first creations. Things took off when I started offering my knot and Mobius rings. You can also find TDN Creations jewelry at La Bou-Tyka, a local gift shop and at private jewelry parties.
We are now a team of 3: my workshop assistant, my administrative assistant and myself, ready to take TDN Creations to the next level!
