Intro
Sara Chyan graduated from the renowned Royal College of Art’s M.A. Jewellery & Metal, London, in 2017. Sara is now based in London and has established an eponymous jewellery brand. Sara reckons jewellery is an object that carries more than just an intrinsic significance, for it is not merely an ornament but also a medium for expressing one’s individuality. Her works adopt a minimalistic and conceptual approach, she draws on a wide range of subjects in a multi-layered manner and likes to involve the viewer in a way that is physical at times. She believes in the notion that her works respond directly to the human body and the surrounding environment, and the way in which the wearer engages with it is integral to her art form. As an artist, Sara’s everyday experiences and activities serve as a starting point for her creations. Click here to view the original interview with ART Habens (from page 180).
