I believe the jewellery is my substitute.
In my jewellery works, the viewers can find some of my thoughts and past experiences. In my opinion, I copied my thoughts and my personalities on my jewellery. The jewellery does what I want to do but dare not do for me, saying what I want to say but cannot say. I can integrate myself into the work. I think I don't know myself and I don't even know what colour I like. When I am making jewellery, it's like I am trying to find out who I am and why I am making. This is a painful but rewarding thing. I think it is very meaningful for one to know himself or herself.
For example, when I was making a project for neglected children, I tried to recall my childhood and found some persistent but forgotten memories. There are some things I want to talk to my parents, but it's hard to say. Jewellery has become the "person" to speak for me.
Jewellery is an indispensable tool for me because it is very important for me to know myself. The value of contemporary jewellery lies in the fact that each piece of jewellery is a proof of understanding one's life.
