Cissy Chan’s Ring
This ring was made by Chan Wing Sze, Cissy. She is a Hong Kong jewelry artist who graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014
This ring belongs to a jewelry set called “Far Sea”, which also includes a brooch, and creates a direct link between our daily usage of plastic and ocean pollution. Like the tiny plastic pearls that fill the “stomach” of the fish in Cissy Chan’s ring, microplastics in the oceans are known to enter living fish swimming in the waters of Hong Kong.
In 2018, the non-governmental organization Green Earth started to systematically collect plastic garbage at Hong Kong harbors and beaches.
