mulitisensory, moving and light reactive pieces entice us to go with the glow

The illuminating jewellery of Wanshu-Li is focused on exploring a multisensory experience and making tactile wearable pieces, which involving vision, sound, and touch. The inspiration for her jewellery series “Go with the Glow” stems from capturing movements of free-swimming marine animals. In particular it is the jellyfish which caught her imagination. Soft, light, and glowing with amazing colours providing an enticing dancing, rave party and laser light show.

By experimenting with acrylic, moving beads, UV reactive nylon wire, UV light and fluorescent paints the results are in light-weight, colourful and playful pieces. The nylon wires under UV light creates an amazing fluorescent effect and provide a pleasant visual enjoyment for the wearers and viewers. Moreover, the pieces create subtle sounds, following freely with the movements of the body.
