Qihuan has always been fascinated by the patterns in art, nature, fashion and photography in the natural world, all of which have heightened her appreciation. She fell in love with making jewelry after she met the jewelry artist Li Liang in Shanghai. Qihuan spent half month staying in her studio and learning basic skills. After a year, Qihuan came to the United States and decided to study jewelry design in California.
My jewelry is an experimental and personal dialogue with the contrariety of concepts and their relation to each other. They are opposite yet complementary, they are dynamic but in harmony. For me, making jewelry is a medium for expressing my feeling and thoughts.
