Cai-Xuan Wu knew going into her education at the Birmingham City School of Jewellery in the United Kingdom that she wanted to create art. She follows a unique construction process, forming industrial acrylics into shapes reminiscent of sea creatures. Her pieces have an ethereal quality to them that take the wearer back in time to the days of empires and kings. Wu’s enchanting brooches and earrings are all made by hand. Her masterful use of materials and form creates a three-dimensional sensory dichotomy that calls into question the order and chaos with which see the natural world.
