Haochen was inspired by the random disposal of plastic in our lives, especially plastic bags. She studied industrial design in college and was interested in exploring and innovating and finding ways to reprocess these materials. The use of plastic shopping bags as the main material for contemporary jewellery creation has prompted people to reflect on: what is plastic waste? At the same time, this is a process of regeneration. She hope to turn the discarded plastic bags into beautiful jewellery works, and reduce Marine pollutants in her way.
 


Social and environmental issues in the environment of her growth has been a very serious problem, a lot of companies and governments are trying to solve, and more and more countries are beginning to pay attention to the plastic pollution for the environment, at first she was very hesitant to use environmental issues as her creation background, after all, have many designers to create, but she still wanted to use her way to get people to reflect on this issue. So she decided to start creating. At the beginning of the creation process, she collected a lot of plastic products with different characteristics and made many different attempts. At the same time, she also encountered many bottlenecks. Because this issue involved many aspects, she had to make sure again and again that my choice and direction were grounded. After many discussions with her tutor and investigation in books and the Internet, she finally decided to focus on the pollution of plastic bags to the ocean.

She studied the characteristics and characteristics of plastic bags in depth. Plastic bags are easy to use, easy to obtain, but not easy to degrade. They affect society and the environment, especially the Marine environment. So eventually she designed a series of works based on the relationship between the ocean and plastic waste. Wearing these pieces of jewellery expresses a desire and determination to protect the ocean.

 
 
The most interesting part of her series of works is the shapes and lines she created, and she added some small structures in the jewellery to increase some interest.

Start with recycled plastic bags, wash them, cut them into shapes, stack them, and heat them with hot air at a low temperature. Because the relationship between low temperature heating will make plastic bags shrink and harden, so can create fine lines, and each line and shape is unique. However, through the combination of shapes and colours she cuts, she creates colourful organic patterns that are clearly coral, plants or water patterns in the ocean.

In the end, she chose to add some rivets to create a more vivid organic style, which simulates coral floating in the ocean.
