« Annie Huang is a South African-Taiwanese jewellery designer. Having lived in multiple countries, she is intrigued by cultures especially in arts and languages. Gaining her education in contemporary jewellery at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, UK, has allowed her to step into the niche world of art jewellery.

 For her current collection, she uses jewellery as a creative medium to explore the personal sense of belonging of individuals. She invites both jewellery and non-jewellery wearers to share their stories over a hot drink. As she listens and writes, the words written are then transformed onto metal to be formed into multiple layers representing the designer’s aesthetics. The burnished edges and lines of the layered metal, exploits the depth of human emotions and aims to provoke thought on where one truly belongs.

The jewellery is organic and imperfect to resemble a branch on a tree. There are certain bark like textures that seem to almost peel off, to resemble a partial unveiling of the self. The colours range from autumn leaves, to subtle grey tones, intended to allow viewers to contemplate their thoughts without distraction. On closer inspection, some pieces have visible words that the audience can choose to interpret or they can ask the designer to share the full story. The aim is to communicate, share and relate through art jewellery »

« Jewellery holds the sentiments of our attitudes towards life. The raw emotions of the maker, the expressions of the purchaser and the touch of the wearer, this is what has caught me into the contemporary jewellery world. It’s not just the creating but also the stories. »

« The inspiration for the ‘Sense of Belonging’ collection, came from looking at bird nests to the branches that they hang off of. Whilst playing around with the metal, the intricate layers formed caught my eye. The metal although malleable, has a will of its own. With limited control, the organic nature is allowed to form, this is evident in the burnished lines, colour and space between the layers. »
