It’s hard to relax in Hong Kong because there is always so much going – it’s the city that never sleeps! However visiting the flower market in Prince Edward always makes me happy because I can just forget everything and take in the beauty. I love the ocean too as it always calms me. But rather than spend my day on a crowded beach, I prefer to look at it from high above in the mountains such as Dragon’s Back etc. If all else fails, a good reflexology or spa session does the trick!
If you have to describe yourself and your professional
background with two sentences what would that be?
A free spirit who loves life, exploring the world and learning new things. With my work, I try delve into the minds of people who create and try to explain their message to the world.

The word chakra is a Sanskrit for wheel
Chakra symbols represent the circular centers of energy, and they correspond to the nerve plexuses and organs in the physical nervous system.
By focusing on these energy centers, and understanding the function of each, we are able to balance our energies, augment areas in our lives, and even facilitate healing.
Chakra practitioners spend years learning about the healing arts relating to these intricate energy centers.
Many individuals have chakra symbols embellished on clothing or keep these images near them in order to keep the attributes in their mind as they aspire to better balance and higher energy.
The idea was to develop 7 pendants related to 7 chakras by using relevant gem stones for each chakra.
The design is an interpretation from the original chakra into Marijoli’s jewellery.
The serial of this 7 pieces was not to intend to create a healer pendant but it’s just an inspiration that I believe have the spirit of it!

Since I'm a new mum I have been concerned with mobile's radiation and how can I still use my iPhone and not compromise my baby's health. Will let you know more from Thailand...to be continued

Marielle Byworth makes good use of her downtime. The Swiss-educated, Hong Kong-based designer came up with the idea for her Marijoli jewelry line while diving in the Maldives and Palau a few years ago. Fans of her nature-inspired pieces include Kate Moss and Madonna.
What inspired you to create this jewelry?
I had spent a lot of time diving in some beautiful spots like the Maldives and Palau and I became mesmerized by the beauty of nature. At the same time I was working with a jewelry maker to come up with some fresh designs and I really wanted to be able to replicate the beauty of the underwater world and have it with me at all times. A piece of jewelry was the perfect solution.
How were the pieces made?
The initial process started with the inspiration and working relationship above, from there I went to my Tokyo studio and started to draw designs. Once I was happy with the designs I made models in wax so I could play with the shapes. The next phase was to start talking with manufacturers. I then made a mold using the prototype that I had created. So many of my friends liked the model that I thought I would make some for gifts. Once I started to produce, more and more people started to buy and that’s how I went into production.
What was the big aha! you had while creating this product?
The moment I found the perfect shape and curve—it took a while.
Can you describe your creative process?
It’s kind of like a meditation process. I spend a lot of time focusing on a magical moment and focus on it the whole time when producing a piece.
What do you love about what you do?
That I can help people express themselves. I love seeing what people come up with. I worked with the Miss Universe Japan girls and they were very creative with how they wore the Elema piece—around a boot, covering a watch, around their necks. All extremely cool and saying something different. I particularly love seeing how proud people look when they are wearing my pieces.
How would you sum up your aesthetic/design philosophy?
Abstract minimalism with elegance and beauty that you can relate to.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a line for older people, children and parents using the power of healing stones
What would you like to do other than your current occupation?
I would like to broaden what I design to include a range of bags, belts and accessories.
