Jeweller and sculptor specialising in handcrafted goldsmithing, enamel and ceramics combining traditional culture with contemporary art forms; a robust narrative and rich visuals play expressively on an interpretation of the Chinese character eye as meaning both judgement and as an exploration of self-identity or I.

Symphonic Wave Collection marries Chinese embroidery with Western silhouettes, creating a harmonious fusion of heritage and modernity; inspired by nature embodying a vibrant palette and intricate detailing. The botanical garden fantasy theme perfectly complements artist Bruce Chidovori's set design: 'the collection radiates with shades of soft pink, ethereal yellow and shimmering gold...invoking sunlight on petals.'
