Through the Looking Glass
Dania Lu studied at the Ural State Mining University as well as the China University of Geosciences, laying the foundation to establishing herself as an up-and-coming jewelry designer. Her work is deeply influenced by painter Edward Hopper, especially by one of his most famous work, Nighthawks.
“And by the time you truly understand a painting, you might find yourself already in the theatre.”
Lu believes that we have a tendency to picture ourselves in fairytales. For her, this is one of the main sources of happiness in life. She takes elements from the fantastical world and present them in a surreal light, immersing the wearers of her creations in their very own fairytales, reminding them of childhood delights in the midst of a busy, uncompromising reality.
