About the Process
Every piece is imbued with its own spirit and transformed by a combination of the Material, Craftsmanship, and Essence that make it stand out. In the eyes of Wynn Wynn Ong, the world is a place of vast potential. It is a place of wonder and of transformation, where elements are on the brink of discovery, and transition through alchemy.
Every piece of jewelry has a story to tell and a name to remember. It is the incarnation of her emotions, and an emblem of her experiences. From the materials used, the patterns, the weave, the density, to the color, and contrast – these are all symbolisms of Wynn’s experiences and tangible representations of her evolving perspective.
Seeking the Material
Wynn Wynn’s craftsmanship is complemented by the authentic materials used in every collection. The elements are carefully studied and combined together in a way that they would aesthetically and physiologically fuse together.
Every jewelry to has be a blend of form and function. How it will fall on the body. It’s very important for me to understand how the body works and the structure. You design around that.
The Craftsmanship of True Artisan
Wynn’s process is not only an intellectual but an intelligent approach. It is the process of crafting, redefining and re-experiencing things and making them better in every way. This is replicated by her skilled artisans that are trained to see the intricacies of every piece.
Each piece is bespoke and the parameters of the design are carefully considered in the process. It is measured during several fittings and will be created in collaboration with the client and trained jewelry artisans.
The Essence of a Luxury
“Whatever a person does, it is the distillation of everything you’ve gone through in life. People can come up with their own take and imagination.”
"But the experiential thing is different. The way I think is made by having grown in Europe, having traveled my whole life, and having had the opportunity of seeing how people live from every strata of society – from the very top to the very bottom. It really is a distillation of everything I’ve absorbed. It’s a distillation of the world, and of my sense in every facet of life.“
It is Wynn Wynn’s ability to synthesize the key moments in her life that truly makes all her collections a piece of treasure. The life that she brings out and the essence that she evokes in her work, coming from her distinct experiences, are elements that can never be replicated.
“Art for me is not being safe. It is not creating something that you know if formulaic because it sells. I’d like to think that by creating something that is really good, that is really handcrafted, that is really unique, it will appeal to the collector who recognizes it as such.”
In the sea of sameness, Wynn Wynn’s creations stand out. You will know an authentic Wynn Wynn Ong piece simply by knowing that it is the one and only existing piece in the world – created and crafted for you, and no other person can claim it as such.
