Picasso once interpreted original design as that BAD ARTISTS COPY WHILE GOOD ARTISITS STEAL, revealing that the original design is derived from designers’ lives yet at the same time surpasses their lives. This is a difficult point that a vast majority of contemporary designers will find it hard to accomplish.
With regard to the dilemma confronting many contemporary designers, Zhou Yong, the cofounder as well as the college dean of International Decoration College of Domos Academy, has, in the Exhibition of Original Designs and Life Arts in 2018, hit the nail on the head, pointing out that the modern era has been overflowing with flamboyant yet meaningless designs created solely for the sake of design (or the so-called showiness) and with mass and cheap imitations. That said following up his criticism Mr. Zhou has elaborated the way to avoid these two extremes and to accomplish original designs. He explained to the public that to be a smart and ingenious designer, you are expected to optimize the associated lives and cultures as the solid foundation and to seize the popular fashion elements.

Balancing all these design elements, designers then need to give full play to their imaginations so as to finish their creative interpretations of arts and to work out the genuine original design. JEWELRY HUNT, served as the platform for displaying original jewelry designs, has been firmly championing our designers’ original ideas and enthusiastically keeping pace with fashion. It is wholeheartedly devoted to offering a one-stop service platform to all original designers and fashion buyers.
If we take a glance at gorgeous jewelry products from different nations, we will understand that Mr. Zhou’s words make sense in terms of original designs. Behind designers’ excellent craftsmanship, we discover that different nations’ unique cultures and lives function as the reference for designers to embark on original designs. Chinese family traditions have been mirrored in original jewelry designs in shape of the dragon and phoenix; Egyptians’ admirations for their national totem Re, the Sun God, has been reflected on designers’ prioritized raw materials for original jewelry designs, the gold; After the Art Nouveau, French’s adoration for graceful females of the modern era has been concentrated on original jewelry designs whose themes frequently revolve around women’s cheeks… It takes no arduous effort for us to dig out the formula for original designs. Designers should first and foremost return to the background cultures and lives to which the specific type of jewelry belongs in the course of distinguishing their works from the ordinary mass products. It is to their credit that designers, actively participating in JH’s community, are sensitive to cultural aesthetics hidden in the fashion jewelry. They have abstracted these essences and skillfully intertwined them with their designs polished to be eye-openers of second-to-none styles.
As the first vertical industrial Internet platform in fashion jewelry around the globe and an online community where designers and buyers are able to interact with each other and to do purchasing, JEWELRY HUNT has been committed to constructing a world that not only embraces diversified original jewelry styles but also showcases and promotes our team members’ works and design inspirations.

For instance, Vernon Wilson, one of JH’s members from Panama, has successfully ingrained the traditional family culture in his work. Through depicting the common but heart-touching nature scene of a mother bird feeding its cub, he worked out the ingenious MOTHER-CHILDREN pedant, illustrating the inseparable bondage between mothers and children. Aside from meaningful themes abstracted from daily lives, there are themes regarding exotic cultures.
