Barbara/Yixuan (b.1999) is a jewellery artist who blurs the line between wearable art and standalone sculptures. Her creations capture the essence of often-overlooked details, unveiling the subtle beauty found in the mundane. Barbara crafts pieces by drawing on an intimate lens that evokes emotions, giving objects an anthropomorphic character, and leading viewers into a world of texture, balance, and simplicity.
Having studied BA jewellery design at Central Saint Martins, Barbara received the Cartier Scholarship in 2021. Her works have also been exhibited at events including the Goldsmiths' Fair, London Design Week, and Munich Jewelry Week. Through her exploration in crafts, Barbara's creations offer a sensual resonant experience to the audience.
