品牌介紹|STORY


CORDATE一詞源自於幸運草,COR 在英文口語有驚奇一詞,
然而對於飾品搭配最大的動力來源,是期待著每次搭配因飾品所帶來的驚奇感,
飾品風格因著迷於這種古典的風格,希望在搭配上能讓人感覺到更不同於以往的自己。


////
由於本身喜愛古董的古典美感,促使我成為
飾品​設計。
但在實際接觸飾品之後,發現不同時期的飾品風格、使用習慣,
跟現今大家所認識接受的飾品配戴方式也漸漸不同。
 
尤其以古董別針來說,早期別針的設計其實更為大膽。
可惜的是,袖扣跟別針,在台灣,這兩種飾品的使用率並不高,甚至許多人從未購買過。
主要原因是,因為亞洲天氣濕熱,平日穿的布料輕薄,所以使用別針的機率不高。

「所以,如此這種精緻的設計就要開始被慢慢被淘汰掉嗎?」
在想要保留如此精美的設計,而不讓其逐漸式微之下,因此發想出另外一種方法,
「那如果把這些別針飾品當作素材變化成其他的飾品配件呢?」
在採納許多客人的意見反應過後,於是把早期VINTAGE的別針,結合自己平日蒐集的其他素材,

增添一些較新穎的元素進去,便能重生成與眾不同的飾品。
一系列的VINTAGE的設計理念、新元素、配色都以精緻古典卻又帶點可愛討喜為主。
希望能夠讓大家對於古董飾品有耳目一新的看法。



 
About COR-DATE.

As a long-time love affair with the antique jewelry, it’s the reason to inspire me to be a jewelry designer.
After getting into the world of jewelry, I've found out the user's habits and style
in each period of the fashion is way beyond our expectation.

Especially for antique brooch, the early design of brooch was more fancy and magnificent.
It’s a pity that the usage of cufflinks and brooch is quite rare in Taiwan even many people have never bought it.
The main reason is that the climate of Asian is humid. Therefore,
the fabric of the clothes is much lighter weight, not suitable for brooch.


"So, does this exquisite design will fade away slowly?"
I want to keep such gorgeous design of jewelry instead of letting disappear gradually. So I got some pop-up ideas,
"What if I use these brooch jewelry as the material, and transform them into other jewelry accessories?"
After receiving the advice from many customers, using vintage stock
and new components from all around the world including Brass,

Copper and gemstones. I decided to use the vintage jewelry to combine others material I collected,
add some modern elements of creations to become the distinctive jewelry.
The whole design concept, creations and color-matching of the series of the vintage jewelry
is mainly exquisite classical and a little bit girly.

I hope my jewelry design will make everyone has a fresh view of antique jewelry.
