EDITION ONE

BRASS / STERLING SILVER

LIGHT WEIGHT HAND CUT WINK FACE HANG ON A STERLING SILVER RING AND A BRASS SPHERE.  STERLING SILVER EAR POSTS.

WINK'S BACKGROUND:

INSPIRED BY MY NEW BORN DAUGHTER - HAZEL.  HAZEL WINKS FROM DAY ONE AND HER LITTLE FACE INSPIRED ME EVERY SECOND.

WINK'S DESIGN PROCESS:

I START FROM A SKETCH OF HAZEL'S WINKY FACE, THEN CUT OUT MY DRAWING AND TRANSFER IT INTO BRASS METAL SHEET.  I MELTED RECYCLED BRASS INTO A BALL AND SOLDERED WITH STERLING SILVER RING WITH THE WINK FACE.  MATERIALS ARE ALL PURCHASED LOCALLY IN NYC.

PRODUCTION PROCESS:

I WAS BORN IN BEIJING, CHINA.  I FOUND A BENCH JEWELER NAME MASTER YANG, WITH A SMALL JEWELRY STUDIO AND HIS THREE STUDENTS.  THEY HAND CUT EVERYTHING FROM MY SAMPLE DESIGN.  WE DO FAIR TRADE INSTEAD OF THE UGLY MESS PRODUCTION.

FINAL FINISHING PROCESS:

AFTER RECEIVING THE PIECES FROM MASTER YANG.  I USE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAMMER TO MAKE CERTAIN MARKS THAT LOOKS RIGHT TO MY EYES.  I THEN COMPOSE OR CONNECT EVERYTHING INTO A FINAL FINISHED PIECE.
