Inspired by the pressing issue of melting icebergs in Antarctica and its effect on the wildlife living in the area, the Tears collection took inspiration from nature, architecture, and Chinese calligraphy to create a series of minimalist yet metaphorical designs.

The Tears of Hope Bangle won the Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Award in 2020 in the sustainability category. This meaningful design inspired Edward to develop a collection that is dedicated to the global warming issue. Many designs from the collection capture small and melting details from our nature. For example, the Dew Ring is inspired by a drop of morning dew that got stuck between branches; the Tears Ring depicts the moment when ice turning into the water. The shape and structure of the designs took references from the antarctic animals' skeleton, Parametricism architectures and Chinese calligraphy. Edward poetically created a series of designs in futuristic forms and embedded them with heartfelt and tearing messages through the clever selection of materials and gemstones.

Key Features:

  • Inspiration. Drawing from the natural world, architectural forms, and Chinese calligraphy, these pieces reflect a thoughtful response to global warming and environmental changes.

  • Design Philosophy. The collection features designs that capture the essence of melting natural elements, such as the Dew Ring's representation of morning dew caught between branches, and the Tears Ring's depiction of ice transforming into water.
