Fake Plastic Love

Hi, I am Scarlett, the founder of Fake Plastic Love which serves as my platform to turn fun ideas into wearables. It is named after the lyrics of Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead. All pieces are handmade and designed by me at my home studio in Hong Kong (As you can see it is very chaotic everyday).

Metalsmithing

As a person who has zero jewellery background, when the pandemic hit hard in 2020, I started learning metalsmithing via YouTube then ordered my tools one by one and started experimenting.(Yes I am very new to this jewellery game)  I enjoy using different metalsmith methods to visualize the images in my head. 

Process

All my pieces are made using several basic metalsmith techniques: hand sawing, soldering, metal forming and polishing. They are all hand sculpted from sheets and wires.

Collections + Inspirations

Let's be real with you, I get bored very easily, so I enjoy creating one-off collections every now and then. The themes often varies, from miniatures to Chinese antiques. I am often inspired by little things in daily life as I started metalsmithing during a worldwide pandemic, most of my ideas are mostly about things in a quarantine lifestyle like my miniature collection. I tend to drop new pieces once or twice a month so stay tuned!
