I developed two conceptual jewellery collections for my graduation project. They are inspired by Japanese traditional wabi-sabi aesthetic – a beauty that appreciates things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.

The Crack collection is about imperfection. In this collection, complete object is useless. It can only become useful after you crack it. A piece of wearable jewellery will be born from the hard smashing action with all the marks and flaws. I combine Jesmonite, Lurex fabric and other materials to create the whole collection. After smashing, the golden Lurex fabric can be seen subtly through the crack.

The Holder collection is about incompleteness. I want to create a collection of ‘incomplete jewellery’. The jewellery in the collection is not complete until the customer combines his or her own object to it. It is like a stone setting without the jewel and the customer’s own object will become the ‘jewel’ for the incomplete jewellery.
