"I am a jewelry designer based in Hong Kong. Inspired by everything, from Modern Art to something I see on the streets. In my designing process, I try to find a balance between technology and art."

"I started making jewelry in 2013 when I couldn’t find a special Christmas present for my wife. At this point, I decided to use my 3D modeling skills to build a star-shaped pendant and used 3D printing technology to make it in sterling silver. That was my first jewelry design and she still enjoys wearing it."

"My idea is to make use of 3D printing technology and Modern Art to transform art pieces into wearable jewelry. My goal is to design energetic limited and specialized jewelry."

"My latest creation is the Tree in Cross collection. It is inspired by Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. The cross, or Christ’s Crucifixion, was one of Dali’s ongoing painting themes. A tree – which represents life, immortality, and eternity – lays inside the cubical and open, yet still confining, architecture of the cross."
