Bojun Li’s works are inspired by machines and architecture. This ‘hard curve’ collection attempts to transform elements of geometric architecture into wearable jewellery, which includes a ring, brooch and pendent, so that it could offer people a chance to wear a small piece of handmade architecture.
Gilding metal, copper and titanium are the main materials of these works. He scores and folds each metal piece to create geometric forms, and connects them by tiny steel screws without soldering in order to show possibility of combining small elements of machines with architecture stricture.
Li uses oxidized solutions to make copper into black, highly polish gilding metal part into gold. These two metals and colours show the history and luxury of previous architecture. On the other hand, he keeps the original silver finishing of titanium, which represents lighter and stronger of modern architecture.
