Chenyu Chiu. Head Piece: My Way of Study Habit, 2017. Copper, paper.. 30 x 25 x 45 cm. Photo by: Christy Chenyu Chiu. From series: Daughter is Priceless. I have always been fascinated by the stories in art. To me, stories and human memories increase the value of jewelry. The significance of my jewelry and sculptural work is to express that every human is priceless. As a jeweler and sculptor, I use brass, bronze, and wood, which to me are representative value, nature, and life. In most of my work, I forge brass rod to show that our life path is always hard and irregular. I also use Chinese knots to symbolize the strong tie that connects each family member. Growing up, my parents spent a lot of time teaching me values and the importance of education. They used their own experiences and knowledge passed down to them to teach me how to build my own life. My projects are based on those memories, lessons, and values of thinking, which I can pass on to the next generation.. Chenyu Chiu
