Cris Gao


As an art and craftsmanship lover, Cris Gao believes that jewellery is indispensable object to express oneself. She studied jewellery design in Hong Kong Baptist University and won the title of Student Group Champion for her necklace design Silk Road” in the Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition. The necklace was inspired by the classic Chinese blue-and-white porcelain that was exported along the Silk Road to Europe. The design combines a qipao collar with elegant blue-and-white porcelain patterns to highlight the beauty of the two heritages, demonstrating her creativity through a combination of rich materials.


Cris gets inspirations from nature, and pays attention to the inheritance of culture. By working on ceramics, she learns to appreciate beauty of nature from uncertainty and impermanence. Which also strengthens her technique in jewellery and ceramics making. She has established a brand called Blue n White, with elegant and simplicity designing style.
