Posted on September 3, 2012 by Simon
Beijing’s 798 Art District has made a mainstream shift in recent years with coffee shops, souvenir stores, flocks of tourists and the usual weekend deploy of an arsenal of digital cameras. 798 has become the center of lighthearted art entertainment, but it still preserves some hidden pearls of creativity like Essence Labs. Opened in 2009 by young designers Yin Xiangkun and Meng Dan, Essence Labs is a jewelry boutique featuring handmade jewelry resembling—and often made from—animal body parts.
