Jewelry is an exquisite thing. Through a tiny vessel, it’s able to convey vast worlds of meaning. As a designer, every piece of jewelry is a little story. I use it to tell stories of the soul, and make it a container into which I can pour my own spiritual world. My process of creation is a process of internal cultivation. Before coming up with a new design, I meditate, opening myself to inspiration and wisdom. When I start to feel a resonance with nature, heaven and earth, and humanity, I can make works of art that touch and delight.
My designs are inspired by my own process of internal cultivation in Falun Dafa, a Buddha-school meditation practice that I learned in my childhood as I fell in love with art. I began studying jewelry design in 2007, at a time when my family was going through intense pressure and persecution. Despite the pain and injustice, I was able to see for myself the transformative power and wisdom of China’s divine cultural traditions, and I learned to grow and transform my own work through the values of integrity, kindness, and fortitude.
