My jewellery design project explores the shape of the human body, and my research is focused on muscular shapes. Through human movement, muscles and bones also change status and have a variety of shapes. The mystery of human-beingshas inspired me to create my work, including its constitute elements ,function and body construction. My work does not look real muscle, they are abstract and flexible because of the shape. I have always drawn the shape of the human body, body and I have also done skeleton models and copied human being and anatomy sketches from various artists. I then painted a lot of 2D shapes of muscle using charcoal as this study process allows me to understand the structure of the human body. I moved on to making a lot of 3D objects to express my ideas and my knowledge regarding the human form. The materials I used were stone clay, flocking powder and resin. The stone clay as a main material in my work is light and can be restructured. The flocking texture and smooth resin formats different visual effects. Currently, I use my carving skills to create different shapes of muscle lines and also used cold connection to make my pieces move which is interesting. As a main colour in my work, I chose pink and combined other skin colours together. I will keep create new shapes and develop my work.
 
When I could not sleep in the night, I’m always watching my hands, arms, vessels through moonlight, or through observation my red and rose colour of flesh to feel the flow of blood, the beat of the heart. In my university, I keep liking drawing the shape of human, has also done skeleton models and copied Master's human beings sketches, so I chose jewellery major. I saw some artistes who made body jewellery, such as Catherine Truman who spends a lot of time to study anatomy for making body jewellery, those tiny vivid forms attract me a lot. This is the reason why I want to explore human beings.
