The seeds of contemporary jewelry was brought from the West to China by Chinese oversea students at the beginning of the 21st century. It took root and sprouted on the deep Chinese cultural soil, consequently, it gave birth to a new life. Compared with the past, the new generation of Chinese designers studying in west countries are gradually forming their own genre, which is different from both the Chinese tradition and the West. The mutual inspiration is constructed through Western and Eastern culture on the common ground of spiritual, it, therefore, is externalized into a series of creativity on jewelry piece. It is obviously showing both the contradiction of their thought and the blending of their spirit thought in this works.
