Balance & Swing by Yilin Zhang

Set  /  Geometric
 

I really like the feeling of flexibility created by curves and surfaces, and the jewels that is kinetic. I think jewellery is both a part of the body and an extension of the body. I prefer to see the body as a canvas, and jewellery is the crowning touch of the body. I am very much focused on the research and study of technology, not only on the handmade aspect but also on new technologies such as CAD and 3D printing technology, as well as material research. I think that design and technology are inseparable. Technology constantly challenges my graphic imagination and allows me to imagine more shapes and forms. At the same time, I don't think that designers and craftsmen should indulge in what is the difference between handmade and non-handmade. All this is based on our mind's ability to imagine forms and shapes. Of course, while jewellery should be beautiful and practical, jewellery should also be used as a container to carry meaning and history. This is what I think of the designer's mission and the significance of jewellery. Integrating meaning, functionality, appearance, and technology, combining tradition with modernity, and combining Chinese and Western cultures are my primary focus as a Chinese designer.
