BACKGROUND Hongkonger Carina Wong began experimenting with jewellery at the age of 16, when she would string beads together and make accessories from wood. Her creative appetite led her to explore crafts ranging from calligraphy and embroidery to metalsmithing and gemmology. With her partner, Eames Jee Wan, who focuses on the business side, Wong created her jewellery brand in 2013. The name is inspired by a Song Dynasty poem—he ting means “a person of contemplation and peace who reflects on the world around them.”
DESIGN SIGNATURE Wong’s debut, The Enchanted Forest collection, reflects her fascination with the natural world and fairy tales. Drawing from folklore, it’s divided into four lines: Bellflower, Dewdrop, Pine Cone and Tree of Life.
FAVOURITE MATERIAL Wong enjoys experimenting with unique materials such as icy jade and black Tahitian pearls, all handpicked by her and carved into shapes such as flower buds.
