Growing up, Ho Ching had the opportunity to interact with different professions in the jewellery field. She would see how the goldsmiths work, learn how to inspect a piece of jewellery, and grade the characteristics of diamonds and gems. During her first encounter with wood and metal when she was 13, she grew fond of hand fabrication. She was awarded a scholarship for her Jewellery and Metal class in high school, and her interest in jewellery grew. Today she continues her passion with jewellery, through the creative process using alternative materials. Ho Ching is the winner of the 14th Annual L,A. Pai National Jewellery Student Competition.
