In 1973, Wallace Chan became a gemstone-carving apprentice and started his journey of creation which has continued for over 40 years.

A high level of curiosity and a strong thirst for knowledge have been behind his constant experiments in gemstone cutting, carving, setting, metallurgy, mechanical engineering, and metal soldering.

Navigating through numerous twists and turns, he strives for the ultimate perfection in his creations. As an exceptionally perceptive person, he embraces the experiences and energy coming from interacting with materials and incorporates them in the fine details of his pieces.

As a creator, he infuses his passion, dreams, and philosophies in each of his pieces, which elicit intense visual aesthetic perceptions and evoke strong emotional responses in viewers.

Drawing from over four decades of his experience, Wallace Chan will analyze and illustrate the poetic aesthetics of jewelry art creation through three ever-interacting factors: imagery, emotions and music.
