Italy, Florence, Alchimia Contemporary Jewelry School, 2019
琢 (zhuo) is a Chinese word used to describe the process of jade carving and polishing. It also has a metaphorical meaning, transforming something which is common into something that is special and precious.
My work is mainly about the transformation from non-precious to precious in the metaphysical sense. I have dedicated myself to bottle glass, a common material which, visually, reminds me of jade and my cultural origin. During the process of transformation, I put love, care, time, effort and also risk into each piece. I hope this kind of concentrated energy attracts people to touch it, wear it, feel it, wondering ‘what is jewellery for me?’
