When I first set foot in London, I was captivated by the striking clash of cultures that greeted me. The rich tapestry of traditions here diverged entirely from my own, compelling me to share my personal perspective on the essence of London. Pigeon feathers, as my chosen medium, are a strong representation of British culture. To further weave together influences from my Chinese heritage, I skillfully employed traditional kingfisher craft, combining pigeon feathers with metals.

At the same time, I couldn't help but notice the gradual fusion of Western and Eastern cultures. It is a harmonious blending born from the cross-pollination of ideas and information. For instance, in China, an increasing number of brides now embrace Western-style wedding dresses while embracing their heritage through traditional Chinese wedding jewelry. Yet, this fusion often falls short of a fluid integration, resulting in a somewhat rigid outcome. Therefore, my aspiration is to forge a true fusion of Western and Eastern cultures, crafting a captivating collection of Chinese wedding jewelry against the backdrop of London's iconic landmarks.

Five Gold

Chinese wedding gold is mainly divided into two parts, three gold or five gold and wedding nine treasures.

Three gold refers to the necklace, earrings and bracelet, after the anklet and ring are called five gold. Most of the traditional three gold has the meaning of the bride, earring refers to protect the bride's ears, do not listen to slanders, to avoid husband and wife quarrel; The ring shows that the bride is subordinate to the man; Bracelets and anklets are similar in meaning to bind the bride to prevent her from leaving home.

In order to break this constraint on women, I modified the traditional hardware into brooches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and hairpins according to the habits of modern women's jewelry wear, which are relatively simpler and less cumbersome to wear. In addition to meeting the solemn and elegant wearing needs of the wedding, it can also be separated and worn separately to ensure the daily comfort of daily wear.

Nine Treasure

Wedding nine treasures is a set of pure gold jewelry used for getting married in ancient times,  represents the blessing of the couple's marriage, but also puts forward demands on women in a disguised way. 

Therefore, I combine the form of nine treasures with the landmark buildings of London, and try to combine my personal Chinese traditional cultural background with the British environment where I am now, so as to achieve the collision and combination of two different cultures.
