Vintage lucite chandelier crystals, lined with red envelopes from Lunar New Year. The red envelopes (hongbao in Mandarin/lai see in Cantonese) are for giving money on New Year and other special occasions to kids, but also newlyweds, graduates, newborns, etc. I love lai see - their red seems more intense than any other paper, and the gold seems spun from new beginnings. These show-stopping earrings are light and luminous.
I create remarkable jewelry from antique and vintage architectural and historical elements, including musical instruments, vintage pens, clock-parts and postage stamps. They’re framed in classic jewelry settings, to highlight their hidden beauty. The result is an adventurous synthesis of functional form and glamour.
