hong kong-based design duo chan oi yau riyo and kwong ho sun howard of shannnam have exhibited 
‘fragmented chronicles’ at this year’s tokyo designboom mart, part of tokyo designers week 2011
the collection is composed of 100 rings, each with a landscape frozen inside. the jewelry spans different topics, 
from children’s characters to nuns standing in the snow, a woman walking with a suitcase to a shepherd 
with his sheep. each is a visual story invoking a reaction and stirring the imagination of the wearer.
