Power of Jewellery / 2013
Power of Jewellery
The project “Power of Jewellery” is presented to display the positive emotions of jewellery. Jing wants to express and show the feelings of confidence and bravery of those people that lived as warriors. Objects were known and understood to bring specific powers to people that reflected their own personal experiences of life. Her designs are inspired by armour and geometry; Jing shows strength and tough design by Perspex and textiles as armour.
Jing wants to remember her grandmother by the emotional project, because her grandmother passed away in Taiwan as she was working on her project in the UK. The event was inspired by a cardigan that her grandmother left to her. When Jing wears the cardigan she feels that her grandmother is beside her. Jing wishes to express this feeling and emotion in her concept and design. Therefore, she put the element of knitting into her work to represent warmth and comfort when people wear the jewellery as well as emulating design and style.
Materials: Perspex, Yarns, Textiles, Strings and Magnets.
