The Big Dipper shines and rotates, out of which nebulas and galaxies are formed, time and space perfectly unite, and the twenty-four solar terms are thus born. The Big Dipper changes in position and the stars move in their orbits; the twenty-four solar terms converge into the heart of heaven, where seven stars of the Big Dipper glitter. It leads us to look up and observe astronomical phenomena, look down and observe the geography, look at ourselves and reflect on human relations. The virtual gold thread taken from the traditional filigree craftsmanship is woven into a nebula-like ribbon signifying 'the moving stars and the rotating Plough'. When it's worn around the eyes, twenty-four pearls for twenty-four solar terms dance to the wearer's movement. High time to join us and have your glistening eyes dance to the rhythm of heaven and earth.
