My name is Dian Chen, I graduated from MA Jewellery Design in Central Saint Martins UAL, and now I am working as an independent jewellery artist in London. I use conceptual jewellery and other body-linked objects as my primary media to explore the role of jewellery in the body-outside dynamic world relationship. Materializing bold imaginations, I give a thoughtful debate about the topics of posthumanism, feminism, LGBTQ movements, identity and gender equality. In 2017, I established my own brand – Ddesign in a vision of combining conceptual jewellery with business publicity. In 2019, my graduation project “Queer Beard & Cyborg Rainbow” was acquired by CSM Museum for permanent collection.
