Title of Design: Follow the wind
Designer: Ms Yuen Ching Chi
Sponsor: Sharon Yuen Jewelry Design
Description: The Theme of Design is “Light . Shadow”, reminding everyone that sunlight is there after darkness. I hope my design can tell people that “go with the flow”.
Pearl on the Fan represents Sun, and Icy Jadeites represent Flowers. I tried to draw the invisible wind by fans, and meaning to say “find the warm sunlight by following the wind”.
The fan with “pearl” in the middle can be taken off and replaced on a ring. Other 2 fans with "black jadeite" can be combined and changed to another style of necklace, 3 styles can be changed and worn. Excepted the appearance of design, the practicality and inheritance of jewelry were also considered.
