FONG MIN LIAO X LS STUDIO
A collaborative jewelry capsule from Loren Stewart & artist Fong Min Liao.
The collection presents modern heirlooms that distill the elegance of tradition, and reveal the beauty of simplicity.
Designs are inspired by the rich symbolism and intricately-crafted art objects found within Chinese history, as well as the heirloom jewelry and protective amulets worn by Fong Min Liao’s own grandmothers. Her Chinese heritage and aesthetic intuition as an abstract painter are expressed through minimalist silhouettes & ornamental details.
Designer Rachel Loren and Fong Min Liao developed the designs together as reimaginations of Fong Min Liao’s favorite Loren Stewart pieces. Her chosen fine materials take on new meaning through her curation. Green jade, white diamonds, freshwater pearls & 14Kt gold are grounded in their traditional use as ancient symbols of protection and good fortune. Key pieces include a necklace jade disk & gold coin necklace, pendants engraved with Chinese characters, and delicate jeweled rings.
The collection features classic Loren Stewart styles that reflect Fong Min Liao’s approach to jewelry– one that honors cultural legacy, personal meaning, and simple moments of beauty. Each detail is curated to reveal the organic and essential elegance of fine materials, and create a precious everyday adornment that elevates the wearer.
