About the artist

I began working with metals while studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1997. My jewelry is inspired by an affinity for machine components, kinetic movement and natural geometric patterns.

I use various shapes of sterling silver tubing and wire to create my pieces. These shape combinations make up what often gets described as "delicate industrial". I'm always intrigued by people's reactions to my work. They see quilled paper, benzene molecules and chili peppers. I love this aspect of what I do, seeing the work through fresh eyes and looking at it in a new way. It keeps me excited and always innovating.

Jennifer Chin currently lives and works in Boston's Fort Point Channel neighborhood where she enjoys a supportive community of artists and friends. Her work can be seen at some of the country's most prestigious fine craft shows and at many galleries and museum shops.
