“My journey overseas has been quite an eye opener. When I arrived in Canada a few years ago, I was smitten by the cultural differences, the people, the music, the buildings, and, most importantly, the traditions. Throughout my studies, I have looked for ways to bridge a connection between my Chinese origin and my new roots. One thing stands out overall: love.
My jewellery harmonizes traditional Asian heritage and contemporary North American feel through the use of Chinese symbols and geometric designs—it is where East meets West. The designs embody ideas, such as the love parents have for their child or the love of one’s life.”
