AME Gallery "Jewels For Good" Pre-Online Auctions For Charity Event

AME Gallery "Jewels For Good" - Jewelries For Charity Pre-Online Auction Event
(Words: Binzento; Edit: Binzento; Photos: Mandy Lee; Location: AME Gallery, Hong Kong)
Binzento Vincente was approached, and invited by Cred Communications to participate the pre-AME Gallery's "Jewels For Good" online jewelry auction event at the gallery space located in CentralHong Kong past Thursday. As I talked about it in my last post, the proceeds collected from the online auctions, which consist of 5 one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces designed by 5 different artists, will benefit 5 Hong Kong local charities of designers' choice. I wasn't able to attend this event personally, but glad to send my blog corrspondent, and my friend Mandy Lee to meet and greet the gallery and its curator Anna Cheng.  Anna studied as an architect in Sydney and had previously worked for fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton and Valentino. She later developed a passion for contempoary jewelry designs, and inherited the jewelry gallery being in the 3rd generation of her family business.

Very much like Binzento Vincente blog, Anna realized there were many talented artists that go unnoticed but deserve the exposure. Her vision is to promote and introduce unknown jewelry designers and their contempoary work-of-art to international audience. Anna believes that it is unusual to be able to create the exact same contempoary jewelry piece when working with precious diamonds and gem stones. It's very different than main stream jewelry designs. The artists work around the stones to create most highly creative designs, and it is interesting to see the outcome of the finished work. The online auction had already started. It will continue until September 15th, and the highest bidders will be announced and obtained their lovely piece(s) on September 19th. 

Here are the 5 pieces of contempoary jewelry pieces currently for auction:
