“Under the gentle moonlight, a fine party is hold in a graceful garden full of flowers. Through their songs and dance, people send their gratitude to the happiness and prosperity, given by the Faith they have.” Mysterious and elegant, “Melodies in the Garden of Faith” is classic by its symmetrical design, yet a bit of modern test by the addition of wire and hollow structure. The smooth golden trim curves add movements and waves on top of its calming night tone, given by those blue and green gem stones along with moonstones.
Inspired by a Masque dome, the outline build the body of the pendant with gemstones nest inside. The tiling is expressed by wire and hollow structure, reduce the metal weight and add modern touch in overall design. The spinning curves form the silky ribbon shapes, to imitate the flow of calligraphy stock. The floral arrangement of pear-cut stones are inspired by Islamic arts. Its geometric designs are formed of repeating cycles, which produce many tiny floral-like patterns.

Romance on the Milky Way
"Romance on the Milky Way” describes the old Chinese legend “The Cowherd and the Weaving Maid” with the most important element of happiness in the story, the Heaven Bridge of Magpies. Two streams of colored gems symbolize the Milky Way that separate Altair and Vega - the cowherd and the weaving maid, from the gems on the earrings continuing to the necklace. Being the icon of happiness in love, magpie wings transformed from waving feathers to golden arch that brings the two loves together. Representing loyalty to love, faith in hope, and holy blessing, the Heaven Bridge of Magpies must be the most storytelling and romantic “bridge” in Chinese culture.
