Stunning comes firstly, observation secondly, then resonance and thinking come together.
As a jewellery maker, when seeing these jewelleries my reaction might be different from other audience who are not in jewellery area. And there are both advantages and disadvantages on this point.
It could be more easily for me to ignore the very first visual feeling and just skip to the observation of the making details, so I need slow down and feel my first impression of a piece of jewellery, then think about what the artist want to express, is that same or different from my first impression, and think about their making process as well.
New technologies have strong influence on contemporary jewellery. When seeing the jewellery which were made years ago but carrying technologies or new materials, I could associate how necessary I should do research on the new technology and materials nowadays. Even it’s hard to get them or apply them soon, technologies still have big opportunities to change peoples habit or create new wearable products. And thats why I want to study on future aesthetics and futurism style, even though the very highest technologies would not be directly used into jewellery, they would change people’s life and way of thinking in different ways, and jewellery should keep up with that on this specific aspect.
