Today we are highlighting Wallace Chan as a ‪#‎cyantistwelove‬! In this video and feature from the New York Times, he describes the essence of his approach, how creativity is an integral part of himself, and how his work requires knowing about many disciplines, from gemology to metallurgy. And while viewing jewelry as a carrier of heritage, he experiments with different technologies, and makes his own tools.
