“The Broken Architecture” is a jewelry design I made in 2016 with cooper. It is a wearable that contains three rings, two soldered together and connected to one separate ring by a delicate chain. The main structure is the miniature of a broken temple resting on the ring finger. The design serves as a memorial to remind people of Chinese cultural heritage. The inspiration comes from the memory of my childhood of the broken temples around urban area.
The piece was exhibit in the 2017 Silversmith GUILD Metal show.
