The moment before I fell in love with these earrings, this immaculate Frida Kahlo-lookalike (who they adorned) fixed my gaze... which then shifted to the earrings; a beautifully eccentric set of gold-wired hands with organic lines and a touch of quirk. The designer behind-the-scenes is Christene Young, founder of Young Frankk studio who employs a multidisciplinary approach and experiments with different techniques to create her fine works. As ear accessories go, they're kind of loud but 100% original and truly humble in their raw form.

Gao Fachang is walking up a jungle path deep in China’s Six Great Tea Mountains. We have spent the last hour on steep dirt roads, being tossed around in a pickup truck like rocks in a washing machine. Now on foot, we scramble past a hut with split bamboo walls and an earthen floor. Gao, 56, was born in these mountains, and this is the kind of home he grew up in. “Tigers scratched themselves on the outside of the house while we were sleeping,” Gao recalls before hustling on.
