Hong Kong International Jewellery Design Excellence Award Results

JewelryDesignAwardThe biennial International Jewellery Design Excellence (IJDE) Award presentation was held 2nd March at the cocktail reception of the 34th Hong Kong international Jewellery Show. The Japanese designer Natsumi Odate won the highest honour “Champion of the Champions” with her necklace “Rhythm”, which is made using 3D technology.

“Champion of the Champions” shows nature’s beauty

A total of 165 awarded designers from 27 countries and regions participated in the competition this year. The winning piece by Natsumi Odate called “Rhythm” was created using 3D technology. The necklace simulates the form of wild grape leaves. The leaf designs change shape throughout the piece, from real-life forms to more abstract designs, symbolising the rhythm of leaves transforming step by step. Using 3D technology, the designer cast in platinum to express the delicacy of a natural form. At the same time, the abstract designs show the accuracy of craftsmanship. A magnetic fastener makes the jewellery easy to wear.

 

Design Concept  設計概念
Wild grape leaves change their shapes from a real, natural figure to an unreal, non-natural figure towards the end, which somehow creates a beauty of rhythm. Step by step, the leaves embody the moments of the transformation. 3D technology allows us to cast in platinum expressing the delicacy of a natural form. On the other hand, the unnatural leaves show the accuracy of craftsmanship to enhance the sharpness of abstract lines. The magnet fastening helps easy wearing.
野外的葡萄樹葉將它們的形狀從一開始一個真實自然的外形變成最後一個不真實不自然的外形,但仍製造出一個美麗的節奏。一步一步地,那些樹葉具體地象徵了每一步的轉變。 3D技術令我們可以注入白金來展示出大自然的美態。另一方面,那些不自然的樹葉展示出精準的手工技巧來使抽象線更加準確。磁力的扣栓物使用家戴上頸飾時更快更容易。
