90後宅男珠寶設計師Post-90 Male Jewelry Designer


My name is Johnny Yu and I’m a jewelry designer Actually I started my career As a stage headwear designer I studied Stage Art in college I was immersed in it at one stroke And decided it should be my life-long career By chance A friend of mine brought my portfolio To Zhang Ziyi And she loved my works Then she wore the pair of earrings on the TV show Actually before making each headwear I would have a character in my head I would imagine which dynasty she was in Or what kind of background she had Every headwear starts from an iron wire or a rim I would even decide what kind of hair should be used to wrap the rim Based on the character Now as you can see there’re lots of metal parts on the headwear First I draw a full-scale sketch Then I find an experienced engraver to engrave it by hand for me After I come back, I add it to the headwear And assemble This piece of headwear is designed for a grand Mongolian marriage I collected a lot of old parts All the braids and rims were made by hand And the beads were strung together by hand Actually assembling tiny parts Into a piece of really complicated and magnificent headwear Is a spiritual process I felt at loss for a short period I found it(headwear) is hardly wore or used by modern people So I turned to design some showy earrings With my own style My first series is the Garden after the Rain When I travelled to Kyoto I visited a really famous Japanese-style garden and suddenly rain started to poured down After the rain lots of water drops gathered on the flowers I was inspired Instead of designing some trendy styles In accordance with market demand I’m more inclined to insist my own style Every piece of work is like my child So I really want to present them at their best

  1. His earrings are not my taste because I prefer small and dainty stuff rather than large and showy. But I really must agree on what he said: "..assembling tiny parts…is a spiritual process".

  2. the self-made aspect of the young entrepreneur is very complimentary! I would encourage him to further progress on his work techniques and materials. Glue and plastics have nothing to do with the essential in beauty, but he’ll get there!
