This summer, Amberozia is delighted to have 3 students from Hong Kong Design Institute working as our 2015 interns. Carol Mui, Kars Chan, and Yin-Lung Wong are studying Higher Diploma in Product Design (Jewellery).
To the three students, amber is an unfamiliar gemstone. As much as they are learning about amber through their involvement in our sales & marketing activities, Amberozia is also learning through them the perspectives of HK young people towards design & accessories.

I have liked drawing since young and design courses appeal to me naturally. I chose to specialize in jewellery design because I think it is different from other product designs. I like how jewellery and accessories enhance one’s confidence and accentuate one’s most beautiful features.
After graduation I hope I can embark on a career in the jewellery industry. Ideally the job is about design, but I am also open to get experiences in other business functions.
Before I had a silly perception of amber thinking it’s a “coloured plastic”! But after I found out more about amber, I have grown to love amber. I like amber being simple and natural, and that even without very complicated design amber jewellery still have its own uniqueness.
I am an adventurer: I always like trying out new things. Even though in Hong Kong not too many boys study jewellery design, I gladly chose this course. Perhaps I want to be different. Or perhaps I just like beautiful things, and I think jewellery is really beautiful.
After I finished this course, I would like to advance my studies and get a degree: I want to be more professionally equipped for the jewellery design industry.
Amber is a new chapter in my jewellery study experience. I really like the items designed with amber: they are so different from the common designs we normally see in Hong Kong that use diamond, crystal or jade. Amber has given me a lot of inspiration for my own jewellery design creation.

Maybe it is a girly instinct, but I am always interested in jewellery and accessories. I like to wear bracelets & necklaces: They make me feel blissful. After I heard about this course, I knew immediately knew it was the right choice for me.
I desire to become a jewellery designer, when I can convey positive and blissful feelings through my designs to the wearers.
I think amber is a fascinating gem. While diamond seeks clarity, the contents in amber give the stone its signature pattern & amber with rare inclusions will have even higher value! Amber is a unique, special gem with inner connotation.
