Megan Adair – Designer | Ethnic Jewels Magazine  Photography and photomontage play a key role in my influences as a jewellery artist. Inspired by the surrealist artists of the early 20th century, I aim to capture a similar play between reality and illusion. Photographing the cityscapes that surround me, my intention is to evoke a sense of the city, which is at times overwhelming; streets laced with buildings and signs, roads studded with lights, amongst a mass of moving people and traffic.

Baodianzhuang inlay, where stones were placed inside a gold casing, was popular among the aristocracy of the Yuan Dynasty (1271 – 1368 A.D.). A full set of 7 gold hair ornaments was found in Huangpi, Hubei Province in Central China, just north of Hunan. Two gold hair pins, hair slides, ornaments, and the back of a comb were originally inlaid with precious stones, now missing. Because the pieces are not the same size, they could not have been worn symmetrically.
