Oz & Ella

Kelly Kan, founder of Oz & Ella, was literally born to be in the jewellery business; a proud Hong Konger, she is a third generation pearler and second generation jewellery designer. She is carrying on the family business with a different focus by working with alternative jewellery materials, such as silicone and fabrics.

She is often approached by people asking the question, “Do you produce these necklaces for adults?” She did the research and realized that silicone based necklaces aren’t only for mothers with teething babies, but rather, for people who find the act of chewing or “fidgeting” relieves their anxiety, including those with autism and ADHD.

Since then, Kelly has strived to produce stylish, well-made pieces that are design forward - something you’d want to wear, that also has a therapeutic value.

In Kelly’s spare time, she is the mom to two young boys (the older of which is the “Oz” in Oz & Ella). “Ella” is short for Elementals Jewellery Design, Kelly’s original jewellery design company (founded in 2011).

She is a hard core foodie and enthusiastic cook (fun fact: she made it to the third round of the first season of MasterChef Canada!)
