LOOK: Unique Jewelry Pieces By Four Internationally Renowned Artists

Wynn Wynn Ong is the sole representative from the Philippines.

Four internationally renowned jewelry designers come together for the first time at an art showcase at Elements Fine Furnishing Fabrics.

The exhibition “Hidden Gems” will feature works by the late Sandra d’Auriol, the late Jean-Francois Fichot, Sin Sin Man, and Wynn Wynn Ong.

The four artists are part of the 10 leaders in the jewelry design industry featured in the book Hidden Gems of Asia. Their uniquely crafted modern pieces are sought after by collectors today. “Hidden Gems” celebrates the jewelry designers’ determination in conceiving and creating exceptional pieces.

Sandra d’Auriol

British jewelry designer d’Auriol worked with noted jewelry brand Asprey. The jewelry designer favored jades and gems of different colors and forms which she mixed with contrasting textures to create eye-catching and sophisticated pieces. Fichot was a French designer who worked extensively in Asia. He graduated from École des Beaux Arts in Lyon and was noted for his tribal-inspired creations.

Jean-Francois Fichot

Man is the sole founder and director of Sin Sin Atelier • Fine Art• Villa. She incorporates traditional textile, paintings and craft techniques with a contemporary twist in her designs. To make culturally authentic works, Man travels to many parts of Asia—including Mongolia, Laos, Cambodia, and Indonesia—and studies and works alongside traditional craftsmen.

Sin Sin Man

Born in Burma and raised in Vienna and Manila, Ong has made a name for herself crafting bold statement pieces. She has since ventured on to minaudières, furniture, and objets d'art. Each of the Filipino designer’s pieces is one-of-a-kind. She was chosen to be part of “Hidden Gems of Asia” as the sole representative from the Philippines.
