Fei Liu challenges traditional design with latest bespoke creation, Opal Poppy brooch, for the Timeless Innovation exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall


Sought after award-winning designer, Fei Liu, astounds with his most recent bespoke creation, the Opal Poppy.

Internationally sought after for his exquisite bespoke jewellery, Fei Liu, was equipped with a traditional jade, worth £80k. The soft beauty of the jade represents oriental femininity.

The founder of Fei Liu Fine Jewellery wanted to enhance the beauty of the jade for his latest bespoke piece and for it to represent his philosophy as a jewellery designer.

For the Opal Poppy brooch, complex craftsmanship was required to construct and assemble the piece. The petal is hand-carved from Australian Opal, which could only be carved from one rock, to keep the consistency of the colour. The painstaking process took two months for the perfect petal harmonisation.

The Opal Poppy brooch will be on showcase at the Timeless Innovation exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall. The Timeless Innovation will showcase a selection of pieces exuding remarkable craftsmanship and techniques, which independent fine jewellery specialist, Joanna Hardy, thinks are timeless.

Timeless Innovation: 26th September - 20th December 2017, to coincide with the opening of the annual Goldsmiths’ Fair at Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London.

Additional info:

The exhibition builds on the very successful 1961 exhibition of modern jewellery at the Goldsmiths’ Hall that then led to the founding of the Goldsmiths’ Company Modern Jewellery Collection. Timeless Innovation aims to showcase some of the pieces that have since been added to this collection and are examples of craftsmanship and techniques that Joanna thinks are timeless. The pieces are arranged in categories of craftspeople who have worked together, learnt from each other, or who have a broadly similar approach to their materials and techniques. For example, Fei’s Opal Poppy Brooch has been selected for its attention to detail and the intricacy of the opal carving, along with a Charlotte De Syllas necklace of carved jadeite. The exhibition will not give obvious dates to the pieces, thereby highlighting the timelessness of their designs.

Timeless Innovation: 26th September - 20th December 2017, to coincide with the opening of the annual Goldsmiths’ Fair at Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London.
