Xiaochuan Zhang finished design education at the Academy of Guangzhou and completed her master degree in fashion design in Milan. After that she started her own design and art jewellery brand in 2007 Porpora 111. Many Chinese and abroad are attracted by her design and jewellery and every year she launches a new collection. All the jewellery is made in her own studio in Guangzhou.
Two different series of Xiaochuan Zhang’s work are exhibited. The ‘hidden light’ in necklaces and rings, and the brooches from the ‘garden’ series. In both works Xiaochuan Zhang invites us to look further, to discover the hidden sparks of light in the jewellery and to mirror our dreams in the garden pieces.
