Gold ‘Daisy’ FOLD Earrings With Pearls
FOLD originated from a lovely coincidence two years ago when waste paper was smashed into a bin. A slice of silver foil underneath was accidentally thrown out. Upon expanding the paper out, Fei was surprised to find the metal showed a fascinating shimmering texture full of charm. After countless attempts metal-mixing and thickness matching a new rose gold formula was developed. Resulting in each piece of jewellery large, extremely light, yet strong enough to withhold its volume.
Importantly after a field trip to several major jewellery factories Fei witnessed how pollution has severely harmed the environment. Which encouraged to recycle metal from unwanted jewellery, offering it a new breath and our earth a better life.
During studies and practice of jewellery making his position gradually turned from “I” to “us”.
“I think in a ethical way we jewellers share a responsibility to speak up with our work regarding the wrongs in society. FOLD collection is my statement”
Improvisation is the core of FOLD collection. However it is inseparable from long-term repeated experimentation and exploration. Each piece of FOLD jewellery is delicately handmade by the designer and possesses a unique soul, capturing the viewers’ liquidity of the eye.
