Intro
The exhibitor we invited to The Small Jewelry Exhibition this time is Wang Mingxue, the principal of the independent jewelry brand “ODDGREEN”. This is the first time we attempt to cooperate with an independent jewelry brand in our exhibition history. In addition to marvelous works of art, we will bring along a wealth of peripheral products to the audience as well.

Mingxue Wang
The new series of works to be exhibited were created by Mingxue during the long holiday due to the pandemic; for the same reason, the exhibition schedule has been postponed from April all the way to present. In the meantime, the entire series of works has undergone several rounds of modifications and refinement. We hope that you can feel the fresh vitality burst out from Mingxue’s works, bringing you a touch of relaxation and humour that dusts the gloomy days in the past few months away.
 
Beyond academics, The Small Jewelry Exhibition sometimes also wants to share some other things with you, such as how a jewelry-majored student could create her own brand in the learning stage, and how this wonderful girl not only managed to do what she liked but also paid for tuition on herself and laid a foundation for future career development. This is a curious and interesting story, so let’s get closer to know more about her.
 
ODDGREEN is a “wild” jewelry brand, saying “wild” means that the growth and development of this brand have not undergone too much planning or design, but rather taken a grounded natural route. Mingxue happened to take a course on jewelry brand establishment in her third year of study. In the process of completing her “homework”, she invested so much time and effort that she was unwilling to stop even after the course was over. In such a coincidence, her entrepreneurial experience sailed out. Mingxue’s past jewelry works were largely created with acrylic as the main material. In order to better control the production details, she bought her first second-hand cutting machine with the money earned from the street market and vanned it back with her friend. From then on, she learned the skills to operate the laser cutting machine independently and built up her own workshop.
 
The first time I saw Mingxue’s works was at the flea market during the school’s graduation season. While others were selling idle items, she was selling her jewelry. If you are a bazaar, you may have seen Mingxue in various commercial themed markets in Beijing. Whether at school or in society, her booth is always surrounded by girls, and her jewelry works have always been favoured for diverse choices and high-cost performance. As a “very independent” brand, ODDGREEN may not be known to many people yet, but it has gradually accumulated a batch of loyal customers and followers, to whom, Mingxue is called the “ODDGREEN girl”.
 
Mingxue’s works are inseparable from the themes of plants and flowers. In her daily life, she is easily caught by flowers, real or artificial, and used to taking photos for them casually. Every season of ODDGREEN’s new products would reflect the theme of flower, which has become her hallmark. While communicating with Mingxue, she conveyed a very clear vision for the future: I hope to run a flower shop one day, and there will be a huge rose growing from the ground all the way to the roof.
 
Almost all of the new series of works to be exhibited are inspired by flowers. They are both jewelry works and props. Whether in the form of a wand, mask, headgear, or other objects, Mingxue meant to use these props to materialize the imagination in her mind, to visualize those fancy images seen in the wanderings in reality. During this exhibition, The Small Jewelry Gallery will be transformed into a flower house catering these illusions. Welcome to our “Flower House” to experience a special adventure with these magical props.
