Kimberly Chong graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2020. She has always been intrigued by the relationship between man and nature. She often plays with ideas ranging from co-existence, appreciation to environmental repercussions from human actions. She tends to observe and understand the significance of nature's way of processing synthetic objects. Thus, she enjoys collecting ambiguous pieces and using them in jewellery or wearable to express.
Kimberly has been awarded “Gaffa Award for Excellence in Contemporary Jewellery” for her graduation work “Mundane Existence” in her BA Graduation Show, and her work is held within the HKBU Academy of Visual Art Studies Collection 2020.
After her graduation, Kimberly continue to participate in several exhibitions in contemporary jewellery, including “Fresh Trend 2020 Art Graduates Joint Exhibition”, City Hall (2020), “Loupe x AVA Jewellery” Loupe(2020), “RePlace / RePlay”, Goethe Institut (2021)
“Upcycling Hong Kong – Creative practices of Reuse in Comptemporary Jewellery”, Loupe (2021)
