Meixuan Chen is a jewellery designer keen to explore the relationship between jewellery and art.
In 2014, Meixuan moved to Greece. The Greek classical architecture and the decorative artefacts inspired her with the desire to explore art. While she was studying a Foundation course in Art and Design in Cambridge, she started to explore different disciplines and learnt to express herself through her work.
After experiencing the Foundation course, she was firmly determined to study Jewellery and Silversmithing at BCU as she was fascinated by the beauty of jewellery. Furthermore, inspired by the Dutch conceptual artist, Ted Noten, she intends to use jewellery to provoke critical discussion and inspire people to self-reflect.
In Meixuan’s final major project, she created a collection of jewellery inspired by John Milton’s Paradise Lost. The design for each piece of jewellery involves the visual element of dried tulips. The transition process from life to death of a flower indicates the corruption process of Satan’s inner world.
