WALLACE CHAN at Christie's Hong Kong...again!
Wallace Chan is one of the rarest contemporary makers to find due to the incredible amount of work that each one of his pieces require. They are often much closer to miniature sculptures than to jewellery. For this reason every time we find one coming up for sale at an auction we tend to feature almost immediately. Lately, we have been treated to an unusually frequent appearance of pieces in recent auctions. Together with the selection displayed last September in Paris at the Biennale, this year is Wallace's!.
These two brooches will be auctioned by Christie's Hong Kong on November 27th. The first one is a butterfly set with carefully selected graduated pink sapphires and the second one is a very original cicada set with black opal and lapis lazuli. And the emerald earrings below are just sensational!.
