Intro
I studied at the Decoration Department of Beijing Institute Of Fashion Technology. But before that, I have been in contact with the jewellery industry for a long time. After graduating, I worked on the creation of museum scenes and sculptures while creating artistic jewelry. In 2006, I served as director of the China Central Academy of Fine Arts  & Michael Jewellery Research Center, responsible for teaching the jewelry making process of graduate students. In the same year, I set up Han Dong Studio in 798 Art zone in Beijing.

Statement

Some of my collections are used in my works. Some of them are old age. I use them not for their value but for they're full and unique modeling, have intense artistic tensity, their abstraction is enough to shock the world today. In my works, they are usually combined with shells, wood and other materials. I like making jewelry with wood, which is from the living tree because that will not only make people feel warm but also can be retained for a long time. Besides, the structure of wood fiber will make it extremely strong and maintain its sense of life when carving, which will make the works look both heavy and light. I hope to find unconscious emotions and happiness in the natural world through the works and look for representatives of symbolic representations.
