Intro
Danni Xu graduated from Indiana University Bloomington with a BFA degree in Metalsmithing & Jewelry Design, and a secondary degree in Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management in 2017. She has completed a one-year residency at Metalsmithing, Jewelry & Glass department at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago in 2019. Danni went back to school this fall, and she is currently an MFA candidate at the Rhode Island School of Design in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.

Statement

Less is More has been my philosophy since I first practiced in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. The inspiration of my work comes from observations in daily life and experience or challenges I had. I like to use a narrative presentation to share my story with the audience. In my personal narrative, I seek to use forms that are simple and organic, but with details that will reveal with a closer view. I enjoy using non-precious materials such as acrylic glass and embroidery thread, and a traditional fabrication technique - enameling. The combination of non-precious material and traditional fabrication techniques is my answer to what contemporary jewelry design is.
