由於對於土地與手工藝的熱愛，佳玲於2021年成立「小佳碧玉Pieces of Jade」，以探索台灣的古老紡織工藝為主軸，與各城市的職人工坊、台灣品牌、裁縫師傅們合作，期望從賦有人文底蘊的娟印、刺繡、訂製西服...等，期望從穿著與日常的紡織物件，連結藝術與生活。
Jialing looks at material as manifestations of our relationship with the environment and explored the connection between raw materials and the everyday products that surround us. As a multidisciplinary designer who has a textiles and industrial design background, Jialing’s works are greatly inspired by local crafts, small-scale fabricators and stories behind their processes. Through her practice, she looks to innovate, not only using new technology, but also combining with cultural heritage and nature.
