Dazzle Invites | Wanshu Li
Wanshu Li’s jewellery is largely inspired by the brilliant colours and sensuous movements of sea creatures like the jellyfish and sea anemones. The concept of her work aims to explore a multi-sensory wearing experience in jewellery which involves different sensory perceptions such as visual enjoyment, tactility and sound. Her exotic jewels are designed to appeal to the hand and ear as well as the eye. The glass beads mounted on their moving nylon wires are irresistibly tempting to touch, and all the pieces create subtle sounds as they move with the body.
Wanshu’s fascination with dance culture, laser light shows and stage performances have encouraged her to add a further visual dimension to the work. She experiments with ultraviolet-reactive nylon and fluorescent paint which combine to produce a remarkable intensity of colour when the jewellery is lit with UV light. The fluorescent effect of the jewels provides pleasurable visual enjoyment for both wearers and viewers.
Wanshu Li is showing an exclusive range of jewellery as part of the third edition of our virtual Dazzle exhibition – Dazzle Invites.
Dazzle invites 30 contemporary jewellers, showing unique, one-off or limited edition designs, created specially for the exhibition. All pieces are available to purchase from 16 November 2022 – 8 January 2023.
