Founder, Angela Hou

Angela Hou is a contemporary jewellery designer/maker in Taipei, Taiwan. She graduated with her Master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in 2018, gaining a distinction for her dissertation. Previous achievements include a BA in Jewellery and Silversmithing Design (Glasgow School of Art, 2016) and an exchange programme at the Rhode Island School of Design (2015).


Born in Taiwan but educated across Asia, the USA and the UK, Angela has an extensive knowledge of both analogue and digital art. Her work is minimalist and fluent in shapes, drawing inspiration from historical artworks, contemporary sculptures and calligraphy brushstrokes. These varied tributaries transmute into her different jewellery collections.


Angela’s jewellery has been exhibited in London and Glasgow, and further afield in Germany, Italy and Greece. A desire to create unique and innovative jewellery prompted her to found ANG Jewellery in 2021. She works from her studio-shop in Taipei, continuously expanding her collections and creating bespoke commissions.


ANG's first shop is located at near Zhishan metro station and open for appointment.
