Our story began in Hong Kong, where straight Asian parenting and school disciplines existed. Jewelry was once something unreachable for two ordinary 90s girls like us. The rebellion finally took place after college graduation. Healing from ear piercing did not take long, our obsession of earrings grew like wide fire. We shopped from local to premium brands, went on earrings hunting in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand etc. Turned out finding a pair of compatible earrings is just like finding the glass slippers for Cinderella. Big brand products do not always bring the greatest level of comfort. Local brand products do not mean any sacrifces on cuteness and quality.

Jewelry can connect people. Language is a communication tool. Jewelry designed with letters of an alphabet, especially in Arabic and Japanese, has a very unique style. When somebody notices you wearing my jewelry, you can start a conversation. This is the original role of language: forging human relationships. That might be the first step toward PEACE.

Adopted by prestige magazines from day one of his career — from Vogue, Elle, Self, Marie Claire, l’Officiel, InStyle and Madame Figaro, to New York Times Magazine, New Yorker, Town and Country, WSJ or Travel & Leisure – he has become an icon for many of his peers in the design world, as well as for his ever-growing list of fans in New York, Tokyo, Paris and more. But the only praise he is after is the smile in the eyes of the next face he will draw today.

Spiritual and profound, yet with an infectious “ joie de vivre”
