If there’s one thing Lina Hu has learned, it’s to follow her gut. Take that time in 2014 when Lina, feeling unsatisfied with her master’s program in health science, took a break and ended up in a metalsmithing course. “The moment I held my first ring, I completely fell in love,” she says. “I quickly set up a little work bench in the living room corner of an apartment I shared with three roommates and developed my first collection that year.”

Now a designer of modern pearl and metal jewelry—who also had a second career as a professional pie-baker—Lina aims to create designs that convey an understated, still bold confidence. The line has come a long way since that little work bench in the living room corner—Yuun is now based in a studio collective in the buzzing Decade Building in Montreal. It’s not what Lina originally planned to do, but having her own line might have been fated from the start: Her mom had to set aside making jewelry to help run the family restaurant when Lina was young, and she’s been Yuun’s biggest supporter from the beginning.
