Xiao Wangyue

Country: China
Course: Jewelry Design
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan 14, 2019 - Jul 26, 2019

🇬🇧 I haven’t received professional training in jewelry when I was in university. I turned to be a jewelry designer from HR during my study abroad in Japan, and rely on my love for jewelry and the embarrassment of being a designer. After studying jewelry (design and making) in Japan, I worked in Tokyo as a jewelry designer. As a newcomer to the jewelry industry, there is still a long way to go, and I hope to make breakthroughs and improvements in the next six months in Italy.

🇨🇳 并非科班出身,在日留学期间从HR转战珠宝设计,完全凭借着自己对宝饰品的这份热爱与对设计师这份职业的憧憬。在日学习了珠宝设计与制作后留在东京工作。作为珠宝界的新人,还有很长的路要走,希望在意大利的这半年中有所突破和提高。

3-10 终于完成圣母百花大教堂为主题的珠宝设计。翡翠项链和非对称的耳环设计,充分展现文艺复兴的几何美学,配色灵感也来自教堂的红绿大理石,项链则考虑运用佛罗伦萨特有的雕金技法。图为上色过程,灵活运用之前所学的水彩上色技巧。

The jewel design with the theme of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore was finally completed. Emerald necklaces and asymmetrical earrings showcase the geometric aesthetics of the Renaissance. The color scheme is inspired by the church’s red and green marbles, while the necklace is based on the unique gold technique of Florence. The picture shows the coloring process, using the watercolor painting techniques that I have learned before.
