Kewei Designer Jewellery Review And Competition - Ends 17/05/15

Kewei Design is a newly launched British jewellery company, that make interesting calligraphy inspired jewellery with influences from traditional Chinese arts. 



A small company, Kewei Design is made up of Greg and his wife Yichan, as well as their friend Kewei. Kewei - who is a very experienced artist and expert calligrapher gets his talent from his grandfather who is still painting everyday at the grand old age of 92. 




Kewei Design uses modern techniques of 3D modelling and Computer Aided Design (CAD) to bring this traditional art to life, and the designs when realised in precious metal really look like a brush has been dipped in the metal itself, with each piece beautifully made and finished. 



Husband and wife, Greg and Yichan work closely together in the business as well. Yichan has a great eye for fashion and jewellery aesthetics, whilst Greg is in his final stages of his PHD in material sciences and is knowledgeable about the technical processes.

So far they have three jewellery designs and each character has its meaning incorporated into the design; 

Family (Jia, ) includes a heart under a shelter. This is the key to a family. The heart has wings, acknowledging that one will return to family.

Joy (Le, ) has a massive smile. The character can also be pronounced as Yue, which means music. This is referenced in the character, which resembles a musical clef. Music is a big source of happiness and joy for many people.  

Love (Ai, ), you can see a couple dancing together or a mother holding her child. It also hides the Chinese character for heart inside it (Xin, 心). 




 "Family", "Joy" and "Love"

Kewei Deign believe that British and Chinese culture have a lot in common and that each culture can learn from each other. This is something they like to embody with their jewellery and they make sure that the flow and aesthetic of the character is not compromised by making it into a necklace or bracelet. 


"Joy"

As you can see from the information above Kewei Design jewellery is unique, different and elegant, and you can almost see the love and care gone into each brush stoke. It's also worth pointing out that all pieces are created and manufactured in the UK, which I feel is important in this day and age. 

If you like the designs, which retail at £135, I encourage you to enter the competition below for a chance to win your choice of one of their stunning necklaces. Would you go for the design "Love", which can mean the love for a child, a precious husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or sibling? Or is the "Joy" of life and music your preferred design? Maybe "Family" bonds are the most precious to you and you would love to symbolise that in a necklace. I wish you every luck if you enter the competition and if you like this competition it is also worth bookmarking it as you can also enter daily through the Gleam app.

You can follow Kewei Design on Twitter and Facebook.

Win your choice of necklace from Kewei Design
