Meet the Designer



aka. Zoey, Jewellery Designer

“Jewellery can be a therapeutic tool to bring joy and positive emotions.I discovered the idea of therapeutic power in jewellery by making a series of wearable pieces with ceramic and silver as miniature toys to interact with people and help both wearers and viewers feel healed, relieve anxiety, reduce stress, keep calm and forget about unhappiness in their life. The making process of ceramic and designing moveable structures also provides me with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, as well as promotes positive emotions. Also, the making process was a journey of self-transformation and healing of depression, loss, and trauma for myself.”
