Chinese Liuli, or "colored glaze", is a perfect integration of ancient culture and modern art. With over two thousand years of history, Liuli is currently made using dewaxed casting with artificial crystal. The entire long process may take up to 20 days for each figurine. Each piece must be exquisite, bright and limpid.

 

On the first floor of Baigong Handicraft Museum lies a shop named BaiYiDeKun Liuli Fang, which specializes in Liuli products. I found mostly a large variety of necklace pendants and colorful bracelets on display. According to shop assistant, Liuli is very durable, as hard as jade. Their best-selling item is a pendant called "Yuan Meng", which means realizing ones dream. It is a glittering, translucent blue circular ring, matched with a 14K white gold necklace. I found it graceful and mysterious, and could see why it was so popular. Price was RMB 480.

 

Another pendant caught my eye is called Loving Heart (RMB 365), especially the cherub with open wings inscribed within.

 

Not all jewelry inside are this expensive. The shop also carries some craftworks fit for present or souvenir, such as a Peking Opera-decorated small folding screen, for under RMB 100.
