1. The Polska Traveller Ring
I always wear my one-of-a-kind Polska Traveller jewelry. It’s good to be the first one to try them out before selling to customers. I’m attached to this “failed” ring the most. The imperfection of the ring reminds me of the value of each piece of handmade jewelry.

2. Old cutlery from Poland
There is a collection from The Polska Traveller which is made of antique cutlery, aiming to revive deadstock materials and transform them into contemporary jewelry.

3. Ant Ngai Painting
This is a painting by Hong Kong Artist Ant Ngai. Her work is inspired by dreams, old masters’ paintings and scenes plucked out from her surroundings.

4. Legitymacja Radnego Driving License Card Holder
A card holder made with an old Polish driving license, one of the things I bought from the Old Market. I had it made into a card holder after I returned to Hong Kong.

5. Old Polish Map
I was in Krakow, Poland, for a one-year internship, and the place inspired me a lot. This old Polish map is another thing I bought from the Old Market. I hang it on my studio wall to remind myself of the country.
