Knotting is an ancient art form in China and is often formed with silk cords both for practical and decorative purposes. The intricate designs of these knots are often used to add interest and elegance in the decoration of functional objects. The Imperial necklace draws on the beauty of Chinese knots for its inspiration. There are 5 double coin knots that form the centrepiece of this necklace. Each knot is joined to each other with a bezelled crystal chaton. And in the middle, a magnificent Swarovski octagonal crystal hangs in pride of place. The entire centrepiece is suspended from a series of embellished crystal chatons giving the effect of a rich and gem encrusted necklace. Not only is the front elaborate and luxurious, the necklace is closed by a little "drum" made of two embellished crystal chatons adding just that little touch of something special. This makes the Imperial Necklace one that is befitting of an Empress. The Imperial Necklace is part of The Double Coin Knot Collection.

I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.
