BRAND INTRODUCTION

OLIVIA YAO JEWELLERY


對於歐洲金屬和器物工藝的喜愛,奠定了OLIVIA YAO JEWELLERY古典溫潤的金屬工藝風格,特別熱愛新藝術風格工藝品的低調華麗,Olivia對於優雅一直有一種獨特的見解;於英國伯明罕攻讀珠寶設計碩士,也讓她對於金屬工藝有更全方位且深入的掌握。

 

從2013年品牌成立那一天,Olivia 在東倫敦的工作桌前把剛從馬爾他MALTA帶回來的靈感用14K合金彎折出耳環,將有天然紋路的寶石鑲嵌上去,一個嗅得到地中海小島海風味道的耳環誕生了,那是 OLIVIA YAO JEWELLERY 的第一個系列 MALTA。接著是帶有南法優雅的 PROVENCE 系列,用簡單的線條勾勒出植物不經意的完美,藉由粉紫的瑪瑙、嫩綠的玉髓,點綴出初夏繽紛的普羅旺斯丘陵。

 

回到台灣,Olivia 深深感受到台灣女生帶珠寶首飾的習慣非常不同於歐洲,除了實用性外,需要針對不同場合作出調整的需求也更多。亞洲女生特別喜歡佩戴珍珠,所以 ROCXX 系列用幾何線條和搖滾的鉚釘結合優雅柔美的珍珠,試圖融合這樣的衝突對比,就像是台灣女孩們完美的融合了溫柔的外表與勇敢堅毅的內心。

 

COSMOS   系列訴說人與人之間若即若離的關係,用強力磁鐵連接寶石與金屬,圓球形狀的天然寶石就像是宇宙中的小星球,閃爍著只屬於自己的光。每一次尋找靈感的旅途,都不及在平實生活中發現的美好,KADATH 系列以纖細的線條,繁盛的流蘇及鮮豔的冷砝瑯,提醒自己對美好生活的嚮往。JANTAR   系列,保留歷史留下的細緻圖騰與雕花搭配經由時間淬鍊後的藍晶石、透明水晶,最後用現代的金屬線條延伸,  從古老占星術解謎,尋找從過去、現在並通往未來的永恆真理。Oli系列,靈感源自於與台灣生活中最親近的海洋,柔軟的曲面線條改變了一般對金屬的堅硬印象,非平整的有機造型堆疊成了海浪的意象,隨著光線照射就能散發出如同在海面上看到的粼粼波光;結合的天然藍晶石、蛋白石與變形珍珠,就如同大海在浪花拂起後賦予岸上的贈禮。

 

有人說珠寶設計師是光的雕刻家,珠寶的色澤隨著設計師擺設方式而改變。透過每次旅行帶回的小故事,Olivia將在世界各個角落蒐集到的礦石及感受到的人文底蘊融入她的珠寶創作。熱愛地方特有工藝和石材原料,旅行總是讓Olivia沉浸在發現新事物的驚奇中,帶給Olivia全新的創作元素。每一件 OLIVIA YAO JEWELLERY 的作品都是一個生活的片段,那是映在眼底的風景,也是留在心上的故事。設計師運用多種不同的材質,淘選最合適的色澤,試圖呈現世界在她眼中的模樣。不論是怎樣的生活片段,OLIVIA YAO JEWELLERY都希望以每一個創作與您一同旅行在記憶與幻想間,經歷每一個當下。


Gifts From The Sea, Olivia Yao Jewellery unveils its   Shimmering Collection

 

Arty jewelry brand Olivia Yao Jewellery once again   back to Shuanhai, unveiling its latest collection during Shuanhai fashion   week to those who search for the unique.

 

After four years traveling and absorbing the   inspiration around the globe, Olivia Yao Jewellery looks back to its origin,   the small Island “Taiwan” surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, and transforms the   beauty of the sea into its latest collection - oli, which will be presenting   in showroom during paris fashion week in September.

 

Bearing the meaning of coming back from the sea,   OYJ’s ‘oli’ collection pieces are inspired by five different elements: pearl,   wave, shell, coral and seaweed. Wavy shape and uneven surface creating soft   and organic lines, these jewels represent the treasure discovered from the   sea, being collected, and brought back home.

 

The series is comprised of five styles, including   necklace, bracelet, ring, sterling silver earrings and brass plated gold   earrings. Sculpted with natural kyanite, opal and deformed pearl, the   collection is at accessible retail prices ranging from $100 to $400.

 

“I'm an ocean person at all times." said Olivia   Yao Jewellery Founder and Artistic Director Olivia Yao. "As one of the   island countries, we abound in gifts of all kinds of ocean resources.”

 

“Not just providing our customers with elegant and   uniquely designed jewelries, we want to provoke the imagination and the   caring toward the sea.”

 

About OYJ : Since 2014, Olivia Yao Jewellery has   quickly gained its reputation and has been selected by the Louis Vuitton City   Guide as one of the best jewelry shops to visit in the Taipei 2016 edition.   Olivia Yao Jewellery today has three stores in department stores in Taiwan   and has collaborated with select retail locations in Asia and online   e-commerce platforms worldwide.
