Lin Cheung (Jewellery Design, 2001)Vignettes

Lin Cheung

Fellow in 2001 for Jewellery Design

Lin Cheung is an artist and designer who explores jewellery both materially and conceptually. Her approach to making questions the established uses and meanings of jewellery, exploring its role in adornment, in the formation of identity, or as a trigger of memory and emotion. Taking an unhindered approach to craft processes, materials and ideas, her work offers a personal response to everyday experiences and observations in ways that are both witty and poignant. The recipient of a number of international awards and commissions, Cheung notably designed the medals for the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
