Foo Mei Zee is a former magazine editor who currently works at the head of corporate communications at CellResearch Corporation, a biotech business that employs stem cell technology in its skincare line, Calecim Professional. She began collecting animal-themed jewellery both because she loves animals and because she enjoys pieces that are “three-dimensional, tactile and lively.”
Her collection includes several pieces from the iconic French jewellery designer Jean Schlumberger, who is best known for his designs with Tiffany and Co. “The appeal of Schlumberger is that they are beautifully-made, three-dimensional and exquisite from any direction, and yet they are not pieces that you ever feel you want to get cosy with,” says Foo. She acquired most of her pieces directly from the jewellery brands or through Brenda Kang, the founder of Revival Vintage Jewels & Objects.
