Spirit Vision Form
With antique, vintage, modern and one of a kind gems hemmed in 18 to 20 karat gold, Yim&Lin collection is a tribute to the design legacy of Ceil Meredith Hayashi 林 pronounced Lin in Mandarin.
One fateful New York Winter morning in 2002, after stepping into 6 Train, Yim was stunned by a pair of Apple Green Jadeite button earrings suspending three small coral beads dangling before her eyes. “I Love Your Earrings!” she exclaimed. Her encounter with Lin on the New York City subway altered the course of their lives. Her jewelry designs changed the way Yim saw jade and other gemstones. Kindred spirits, they shared a passion for gemstone color play, resonating with the mystical and spiritual powers found in natural gemstones and gold.
Lin’s signature plays of color, shapes inspired by Court Jewels and her keen eye for unusual combinations captured Yim’s curiosity. Yim&Lin expresses the legacy of a vision, formed by curious minds and open hearts.
Yim&Lin can be found in the private collections of museum curators and jewelry enthusiasts internationally.
