Something Beautiful in Jewellery – Wallace Chan

11 May, 2015

For this month’s Something Beautiful in Jewellery feature, I present the technical and visual wonder that is Wallace Chan.

So it is the case with Wallace Chan. This Chinese born sculptor invented his own methods for intaglio carving into precious stones as well as setting titanium(!).

Combined with his unmatched understanding of anodised titanium and flair for fantasy sculpture, his work never fails to look utterly out of this world.
