Lingjun Sun’s 10 years working as an Opal cutter in Australia forms the backbone and supplies the material richness to the ‘Crosscut Cabouchon’ collection. His inside knowledge reshapes the value of Australian opals through bespoke cuts he has devised. Within the carefully designed and boldly coloured settings, Sun matches the opal with new vocabularies of materials, Corian and anodized aluminium meet gold and silver from ethical and sustainable source to offer a stark contrast with the characteristics of the stone. The unusual material palette and setting techniques allow Sun opportunities to play with scale and proportion.
