Country: Taiwan
Course: Jewelry Design
Program: Master Course
Period: Jan 10, 2022 - Jul 29, 2022

I was a nurse, but with my love and interest in art, I studied interior design, jewelry design, and metalworking-related courses at the Institute of Applied Fine Arts at Fu Jen University in Taiwan. I like jewelry design very much, so I was honored to participate in the design competition held by the school, and I won the prize.
I decided to come here to take the jewelry design course for improving my drawing ability and deepen my knowledge of jewelry design. I hope that my design works will be appreciated and that I will open my own studio in the future.

Jewelry Design Master Course (n.2)

This week the teacher taught me how to sketch by hand: including examples of symmetry and asymmetry.
Objects in light and shadow and painted brooches, and follow the example line pattern to design the necklace.

Pay attention to symmetry and source of light.
Through the illumination of light, the object presents light and shadow.

Art Visit: Piazza della Libertà
I found that it has the same background as the Freedom Square in Taiwan, for example: it was built for the change of a regime, and it also has the meaning of protecting the city. It’s just that the Arc de Triomphe was built in 1738 AD, while our Liberty Square was built in 1980 AD, a difference of 242 years between the two buildings.
