Me and Zoey are inspired by traditional Chinese traditional jewellery techniques, reinterpreting its concept of inheritance and apprenticeship, to bring its authentication and delicacy in the process of making with creativity.
We cherish these vanishing art forms and strive to pass them on more effectively. We develop various workshops to spread the specialised skills to the local community and narrow the distance between Chinese craftsmanship culture and contemporary jewellery practice.
