The aim of this research, firstly, is about emphasizing domestic culture: the sedimentation of Chinese traditional metal craft techniques is where the growth of Chinese contemporary jewelry relies on.

This article is a result of the research by Ray Zheng, as the outcome of the internship with Klimt02. This research is based on a timeline of jewellery in China in a political and social context.
