Intro
Xun Liu is a jewelry artist and designer. She received her M.F.A. in Jewelry from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, and her B.F.A. in Art and Design from Wuhan University in Wuhan, China. Her early studies focused on Public Art, such as sculpture and installation art, which allows her to design and make jewelry from a different perspective. Her work has been shown in different countries, including United States, Spain, Australia, Portugal and China.

Statement

Storytelling and my use of imagination are huge aspects of my work. Using selected found objects, I engage in play to create my pieces in sculptural ways. By making jewelry with found objects, I question why people abandon what is meaningful to them. And by giving these objects unique voices, they communicate with people beyond their physical form. My artistic process creates jewelry that evokes a sense of playfulness, joy, and imagination. I give each found object individual characteristics leading to a new life in the form of jewelry.
