Jewelry Design – ZStone Terrace Farm Mount Everest Indigenous Spirit Jade culture has been a vital part of Chinese history. Fewer people, however, are wearing jade jewelry nowadays. The main reason is that the majority of the jade designs on the market are still limited to traditional patterns, for example, the shape of a buddha or a simple beaded bracelet. I interned at ZStone jewelry company (summer 2018 & 2019), the largest and the first company that is known for its successful integration of contemporary designs into traditional jade jewelry. I worked with the company to refine traditional designs, let jade reach younger generations, and encourage people to embrace this unique stone that has been rooted in Chinese culture for thousands of years.I rotated through different departments (in headquarters in Shanghai) and visited the production line in the factory. I gained experience in the whole process of production: from idea to 3-D print model to sale. Inspired by my AP Drawing concentration, a few of my designs were approved, manufactured, and sold online. Fashion Design – Retro Fantasy Mood BoardCollection BoardDue to the pandemic during summer 2020, my credited course at Cornell University got converted to an online course called “Fashion Design & Visual Thinking”. During the course, I developed a line of clothing for S/S 21, where I want to bring a sense of longing for childhood and longing for being able to go outside freely. I believe that middle-aged women should still be able to confidently wear clothes that have a youthful color palette, in which I chose to be represented by a fanciful amusement park theme.I created three looks inspired by Christian Dior’s New Look launched in 1947 and employed asymmetrical cutting techniques to add some young and hip elements, and at the same time created a slimming and elongating effect. Architecture – Tea House I used the modular constraint of the Sukiya’s tatami-mat layout system to create a spatial invention of a contemporary tea house. In the tea house, traditional Japanese elements like the ro and tokonoma are included. I intend for the space to be constructed upon water; the two rock steps on the right would be half immersed in water. As the guests enter the space, there will be a transition from the outside to the inside. Large glass walls will also placed to have the guests better connect with the surrounding nature.
