Cindy Chao

    Cindy Chao: The Art Jewel produces one-of-a-kind designs that begin with the study of nature, particularly flowers, offered in two collections: her Black Label and White Label. Each collection comprised of 36-pieces per annum, takes up to two-years to create. Chao carves by hand a wax model of each design to ensure that each undulation and small detail is expressed faithfully. The carving is then sent to a gold-caster and a stone-setter for completion. Among her masterpieces is a large floral bracelet with curvaceous pavé diamond petals featured in her Black Label.
