of wearable art was first introduced to me as a child growing up in Taipei, watching my mom and her friends playing Mahjong, stylishly dressed up, until the early hours. At the table all the attention is on your hands and the subtleties you make over your next moves. I remember just staring quietly at how fabulous everyone looked when they transformed into glittering movie stars on these rare nights. There is a deep connection to my heritage in these memories that I couldn’t place until recently. I feel that the inspiration for my designs came from these moments. Our family, culture, style and our stories were all on display at one table. This is how I envisioned statement jewelry then and for now.
