Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

To me, "tradition" is the root, "future" is the branches and leaves, and these two complement each other and nourish each other. "Sustainability" is actually a positive attitude towards life, and "fashion and life" is a beautiful expectation, because the expectation of "beauty" requires us to explore a positive attitude towards life.

The Concept and Description of the Work

The work is a new interpretation inspired by historical figures Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei. "Liu-Guan-Zhang" portrays the oath sworn in the Peach Garden, as recorded in the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." The heroic deeds of these three virtuous men have been passed down through generations, their loyalty, courage, and noble virtues continuing to inspire each era. This represents the power of tradition. The concept of "future" motivates us to persistently pursue justice and ideals, which is also the design philosophy embedded in this series of jewelry pieces.
