Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.

Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Taiwan
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
Tainan National University of the Arts
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am a Jeweller in Taiwan, my works are are divided into two major directions: 1. Decorations extended from the body—decorations that are exaggeratedly big and thus change the profile and shape of the body. 2. Surface decorations attached to the body-decorations that are tightly covering the body and thus give the wearer new appearance and visual experience.

Through making jewelry, I explain how the overexpress costumes and luxurious jewelry along with Eastern and Western history become the inspiration for my works.
I present Chinese traditional craft as another inspiration of my collection, and display how the surprising flame can be generated when traditional patterns cross upon contemporary jewelry.

Hi Heng Lee!  Thanks for the nice words on my work.  Your pixelated pieces are off the chain cool!  Are you hand piercing, laser, or water-jetting them?  Whichever way, you are making some incredible stuff!

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More
