    Pre-Lot Text

    The daughter of a renowned Taiwanese art sculptor, Cindy developed an eye for detail from a very early age. Selecting the gems herself and meticulously setting each one, Cindy uses traditional craftsmanship techniques to produce art jewels that can be viewed from all angles, pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional jewellery design.
    Earlier this year Cindy worked in collaboration with De Beers Forevermark, creating a magnificent diamond fan that was showcased in the museums of Tokyo, Hong Kong and Beijing.
