COVEN by Sonia Kang jewellery is a casting of magic, metal and gemstones. Her love for magic and the supernatural is a significant influence in the work at COVEN jewellery. She believes that jewellery has a special power to connect people to their inner magic and helps them to manifest their dreams and desires. She incorporates this belief into each piece she creates, infusing them with positive energy and intention.
Designer, Sonia Kang, is a juxtaposition of cultural contradictions: of Taiwanese ethnicity, born in Argentina, and raised in Canada. She is completely self-taught. In the summer of 2012, she interned for Canadian jewelry designer, Jenny Bird.
A majority of COVEN pieces are made from hypoallergenic metals like: gold-fill, gold vermeil, sterling silver and stainless steel.
The only exceptions being the use of vintage chains and findings that is usually noted.
We believe that your jewelry is an investment that should be treasured throughout it's lifetime but it should not come at the cost of damaging the environment. Because of this COVEN focuses on using as much recycled metal, deadstock vintage findings as possible, ethically-mined gemstones, casting our pieces locally in North America where there are laws and regulations in place for safe practices, buying and supporting local suppliers, and hiring locally to ensure fair wages.

COVEN pieces were featured in Ellements Magazine, Auxillary Magazine and Blog, La Damme Magazine in the UK, W25 Magazine, Ottawa Fashion Week 2012 with INNA Clothing, Fashion Series, COCO Magazine, and sponsored Dystropolis at FAT 2013. In 2014, she was nominated for the Alternative People's Choice Awards for Top Jewelry Designer.
