I adopted a minimalist approach towards my design, just leaf & flower motifs and curved lines. I want to tell the story of Singapore being a rapidly progressing country through the many curved lines that represent the mark of change and progress. Ornamented by the leaf and flower motifs, my design seeks to convey hopes of growth and prosperity for Singapore well into the future.

Grove of  Shining Jewels Supertree Grove is the inspiration behind my design because it is an icon of Singapore and I reckon that it is a perfect balance between nature and technology. The beautiful display of dazzling lights at night can be likened to precious, shiny jewels.

Category C

Extravagant Sea Shores  I was inspired by the bird’s eye view of Singapore’s sea shores from the vantage point of the Singapore flyer. By accentuating my design with black Tahitian pearl; round, brilliant cut diamonds and baguettes, I wish for Singapore to be forever brilliant, always progressing and always treasured by her people.

Each participant may submit a maximum of 2 designs. Designers can choose to work with the following gemstones:

◊ Ruby, colour sapphire, emerald, colour garnet, pearl (Think: Golden ratio, Seed of life, kaleidoscope, Helix, Mandala, cells, crystal structures, atoms, architecture, sacred architecture, alchemy, nature’s geometry etc.)

◊ Diamond ◊ Individual gemstone size not bigger than 0.20ct ◊ Pearl size not exceeding 16mm

Whether sacred or scientific, every creation, however big, however small, is created by the evolution of a single form. Geometry is present in various cultures across the globe, what separates religion perhaps can be brought together by understanding the magic of our creation. Participants are free to explore the jewellery type that best depicts the theme. You may consider all jewellery forms, not restricted to necklace, earrings, rings, bracelet, bangle and brooch.

However, designers are to be mindful about the availability of odd shapes / sizes of gemstones.

After the Spring Rain Having drawn inspiration for my design from my late grandmother’s favourite necklace, I thought it would be good to incorporate elements of it into my work. I wanted to create a design that bore hints of the jewellery pieces that my ancestors used to wear and also with fresh appeal from my originality.

Memories These earrings represent a frozen instant that one family will carry with it through time. I intend for my design to capture the moment just after a warm spring rain to signify renewal and the continuation of life through the generations.

Personally, I think an heirloom represents the spirit behind a heritage. Thus, I have chosen the motif of a knot to depict the connectedness of multi-generations and the spirit of uniting together.

I intended for the swirls around the gemstone to represent protection by our ancestors who will always be looking out for us. Though they are not with us forever, our memories together will always be locked in our hearts.

My design was inspired by the many latitudes and longitudes passing through the globe, which can be likened to Singapore being a multi-racial and multi-cultural nation. Constituting of many timeless, classic cut diamonds and four precious oval gemstones : Garnet, Amethyst, Topaz and Citrine, my ring can basically complement any outfit on any occasion. The diverse culture and heritage that Singapore enjoyed in the past through to the future, is symbolized by the never-ending illusion of the lines on my design. Thus, the name for my ring is Limitless.

I drew inspiration for my design from the fact that Singapore is located at the confluence of the Pacific and Indian oceans, providing gravity to the turbulent history of Southeast Asia. As Singapore is a melting pot of different ethnicities, the dazzle that it gives off is just like the shine that comes from the beautiful pearls used in my design.

The inspiration for my design stemmed from a building’s foundation and the magnificent Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay. In combining these two imageries together, I intend to create a design that depicts Singapore’s rock solid economic foundation with a blooming future that aspires for greater heights.
