Our inspiration is what we set out to save – nature. Our mother nature is delicate and gorgeous – and so is our jewelry. Everything in our collection is a tribute to an embodiment of the beauty of nature. 

Our jewelry is handcrafted to refined perfection, made from recycled plastic bottles by our well-trained and experienced artisans in our Helsinki studio, ensuring lightweight and exquisite pieces.

We welcome collaborations with companies and organizations, providing an opportunity to jointly promote and showcase initiatives that seamlessly embody both elegance and eco-friendliness.

My design journey began in China, where shortly after starting my studies in industrial design at Jiangnan University in Wuxi, I realized that my field often relied on wasteful use of precious resources and was causing significant harm to the environment. As a result, I lost interest in the discipline and instead wanted to create responsible, handmade products with a sense of warmth.

In 2012, I came to Aalto University's School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland as a postgraduate student to focus on sustainable design and to study the artistic recycling of disposable plastics. After graduation, I founded my design brand, Upcycle with Jing Jewelry, in Helsinki, creating jewelry from recycled plastic bottles and fulfilling my dream.

This country showed me that one person's waste can indeed become another person's treasure. Since then, I have been dedicated to promoting upgraded and recycled jewelry that not only showcases our unique personalities but also represents the environmental values we cherish.

I am not someone who wears beautiful jewelry every day, but I have a heart that loves beauty. I love designing beautiful things and bringing joy to others. My customers may not wear beautiful jewelry every day, but they too have a heart that loves beauty and life. When they purchase our jewelry, they are embracing the idea of accepting themselves and their love for beauty, and adding more color and joy to their lives. Their joy is a great motivation for us to keep going.

I also organize DIY jewelry workshops for companies and schools, allowing people to experience the process of creating unique and upcycled jewelry from discarded plastic bottles.

2012年我来到芬兰阿尔托大学设计与艺术学院进修研究生,将我的精力转向了可持续发展设计,研究一次性塑料的艺术性回收利用。毕业后我在赫尔辛基创立了自己的首个设计品牌Upcycle with Jing Jewelry,制作塑料瓶回收首饰,实现了我的梦想。


我并不是一个每天都带漂亮首饰的人,但是我有一颗热爱美的心。我喜欢设计美好的东西,并且喜欢为别人带来美好的心情。我的客户呢,其实也不一定是每天都有佩戴美丽首饰的机会。但是他们也有热爱美,热爱生活的心。她们购买我们的首饰,是给自己购买了一种我接受我自己爱美之心的想法,也给她们平静的生活带来了很多亮色, 她们的喜悦,这也是支持我们走下去的一大动力。
