This series of works are inspired by dovetailing, a Chinese traditional technique that combines different constructions together through a concave and convex fit, symbolizing yin and yang, positive and negative, convergence and divergence in Chinese philosophy. These brooches and rings utilize the basic principle of dovetailing to achieve a transitional combination of paper and resin materials, allowing them to be freely combined with each other, delivering a special modern aesthetic through ages and nations.

Summary of the Master Thesis:
It originated from the disassembly form of traditional Chinese woodwork -- dovetail tenon structure. Mortise and mortise intersect in two, perfectly. The unique characteristics of concave and convex disassembly are used to show the change of jewelry form of "disassembly" and "combination".
Through the positive and negative symbiotic relationship of dovetail structure, the created shapes cooperate and complement each other. Each part, either as a brooch or a ring, can be combined to form a variety of patterns. Several unit shapes can complement and echo each other through dovetail tenon structure, and the unit and the overall form maintain relevance and unity, so that the shape of the whole work can be complete and independent. At the same time, each unit has its own plot and can be disassembled to enhance the hierarchy and playability of jewelry.
In the bracelet design, the combination of mortise and mortise forms the complete structure of the bracelet, and through the combination of the two materials, presents a simple external shape. The dovetail tenon structure is not only a part of structural design, but also an element of decorative beauty, to reflect the metaphorical beauty contained in mortise wisdom. Concise modelling makes the appearance plainer and more elegant, with oriental lasting appeal.
Production technology, the use of paper stacking molding process. The surface texture formed after stacking is simulated by wood grain, which is matched with transparent resin to form a contrast between virtual and real. On color, warm brown and black form cold and warm contrast. Texture, soft, plain paper and clear, warm resin form a Yin and Yang contrast.
Combined with the Yin and Yang philosophy of dovetail tenon in the composition of materials; The combination of dovetail tenon form and paper layer texture; Combining dovetail tenon and concave-convex combination with jewelry space structure, the concept expression of literati feelings in contemporary art jewelry.
