Information about the artist:
Dian Luo, an up-and-coming Chinese jewellery designer graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and currently base in London. She believes jewellery is not only a decoration, but a memorable treasure which strikes a chord in our mind. She is talented in expressing the thought of lives by using insignificant object surrounding us, “I want the audience to pay attention on something insubstantial but powerful” she said, “everything has its own reason to exist.” Using light as the design source, Dian transforms it from abstractive element into multiplicity of geometric jewellery pieces that play with shadow and movement. She combines modern technology with body ornaments to replace the transitional jewellery which makes people to reconsider the value of precious metals and stones.
