Intro
Dongyi Wu was born and raised in China. She holds her Bachelor’s degree at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, and her Master's degree in Metal and Jewelry Design at Rochester Institute of Technology. Now she is currently working as an adjunct instructor at Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, US. Her works have been continually shown in America, China and Europe. Dongyi was the winner for Preziosa Young2020, finalists for the Lydon Emerging Artist Program (LEAP) in 2019 and ENJOIA'T 2017 Contemporary JewelleryAward in Spain. Dongyi was chosen to speak at the 48th annual Society of North American Goldsmiths conference in Chicago as an Early Career Artist in 2019.
As a jewelry artist, exploring and recording types of emotions is always essential for my art. I believe that emotions are important driving powers that provide people with real motivation for their behavior. Observing the different types of emotions through my experiences, literary works, and some research on psychology, I am especially interested in the emotions that express the delicate and intensive feelings and mostly hidden or ignored by people. I liken myself as a storyteller to narrate those life scenes that seem to be trivial and common, but it actually can express strong, intensive, and genuine emotions. 
 
I am also interested in the relationship between jewelry and human bodies. I believe human bodies not only provide jewelry pieces with a place but also bring our bodies into art.
