RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To assist the project,the research focused on the context of jade accessories including the historical value of jade itself, customer, market, technique, and investigate the situation through academic papers, internet resources, field visits of Chinese jade processing plants and interviews with some of their professionals. The context research process perfected this project, also stimulated the hypothesis of "Jade as a material, will become more prevalent in jewellery design."

CHALLENGE:
The organic shapes of the base ring model had been selected through a great quantity of wax-melting experiments, and all the diamond-shaped grooves on the rings’ surface were hollowed out by hand. The challenge was to carve the jade pieces to fit the diamond-shaped grooves perfectly. Due to the irreparability of jade, the parts need exact work to achieve the curves, thickness, and sharp tips.
