Hong Kong Tatler - - Gem Icons -

Tai­wanese jew­eller Cindy Chao is known for her sculp­tural take on jew­ellery, wwith her pieces set­ting records for con­tem­po­raryc jew­ellery sold at auc­tion. Shes cel­e­brates a decade of suc­cess thist year with a new master­piece col­lec­tion and the open­ing of a 2,000sqft2 show­room in Cen­tral. What ex­cites you about be­ing in Hong Kong? I still think Hong Kong is the city where dreams are ma­dem and any­thing could hap­pen if you pre­pare your­self be­fore the op­por­tu­ni­ties arise. Es­tab­lished so­cials in­flu­encers here are re­ally ex­pe­ri­enced and have so­phis­ti­cated taste when it comes to fine jew­ellery. Your show­room will have... an en­vi­ron­ment like a gallery, where peo­ple can en­joy my work like art. Cur­rently read­ing... Th­e­sev­en­hab­its ofhigh­ly­ef­fec­tivepeo­ple by Stephen R. Covey. It’s an in­flu­en­tial and time­less book that I think ev­ery­one should at least read once. Red or white wine? Cham­pagne! Noth­ing makes me feel bet­ter than a glass of bub­bly. If you weren’t a jew­ellery de­signer what would you be? An ar­chi­tect, for sure!

“OB­SERVE THE OB­JECT AND PAY CLOSE AT­TEN­TION TO THE MOST MINUTE DE­TAIL. AND THEN, WITH YOUR HEART AND SOUL, PUT INTO FORM WHAT YOU’VE PER­CEIVED..” —CINDY CHAO
