This research has been an art-based practice-led project focused on ‘inside painting’ in glass jewellery art. It has attempted to create a ‘new model’ for Chinese traditional glass jewellery through the creation of contemporary inside painting glass jewellerys. This research mainly used studio-based art practices, inspired by traditional inside painting of Chinese snuff bottles, traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, influenced by Taoism. The methods of glass making for this research covered blowing、casting and flame work （Fig.1 & 2）
The traditional inside painting of Chinese snuff bottles is popular as a kind of folk art in some places in China. Some inside painters tried to paint in a small hollowed balls or bottles to make glass jewelleries, but the designs still in the initial stage. Hence, in this domain there still have a lot of making approaches to explore.
