Intro
Xiangyin Shi was born and raised in Hangzhou, China. She is a jeweler, a designer and an educator. She studied for a B.A. in accessories at Zhejiang Sic-tech University and an M.F.A. in jewelry at Savannah College of Art and Design. She not only makes jewelry, but also teaches classes in the portfolio, CAD and bench work in different art institutions in China. She has achieved several exhibitions in the USA, Europe and China. Her most recent award is the 2020 Premiul Athens Jewelry Week Award at Autor 2019.
My collection focuses on technology, digital culture and its relationship with young adults. I believe jewelry can act as a communication device to bridge the tangible and intangible, virtual and real. I use sterling silver with alternative materials including plastic, wood, resin, found objects and electronic components to make playful jewelry. With digital technology, my jewelry triggers communication between people and devices, creating a more comfortable environment and more friendly experience. Further, it also encourages people to make their own noise, find their true selves, and embrace their human nature.
