Well, hello there! I'm Trang Dai, founder of TDN Creations.
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.
Elodie is my workshop assistant. She works in production and takes care of inventory. Fun facts: Elodie loves pasta and likes to try all kinds of drinks.
At TDN Creations, we love to delight our customers with new and interesting designs that will help them show the world who they really are!
