Yingying Qiu is a London-based Chinese jewellery designer who studied Fashion Design at the China Academy of Art, and is graduating from the Royal College of Art in Jewellery & Metal.
Ying regards the texture of metal as a metaphor for 'skin', exploring the intimacy of the relationship between jewellery and the body.
There are two aspects to this collection: individual differences and individual connections.
Here, jewellery conveys and protects individuality and relationships, respecting and celebrating the body, every sense and every inch of skin, along with inner consciousness. Ying constantly explores wearability, the uniqueness of visual aesthetics, durability, and the relationship between jewellery, the body, and emotions.
