Surrealist fashion designer Du Yang Graduated from Central Saint Martins and launched her eponymous label in 2009. Her designs are filled with vivid imagination and childlike happiness.
Squirrel Ring is one of the most creative and playful designs from Yang Du’s AW14/15 collection. The mechanical design enables the ears of the squirrel to move when the teeth are pulled.
Lion Studio advised Du Yang on the mechanism, materials (sterling silver and diamond), colour (22K double plated gold) and shape of the design. The rings were handcrafted by a leading silversmith working with an engraving artist based in Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. Lion Studio also supervised the production process.
