Textile Intrigue - Yu-Ping Lin Jewelry

Laser cut jewelry by Yu-Ping Lin
blends aspects of traditional Chinese
 paper cutting with Japanese origami techniques.

Her Kaleido Collection
  builds repetitive, symmetrical patterns
of kaleidoscopic colors and shapes.
She uses felt, silk and other textiles to
create these elaborate bracelets, pendants and brooches.


 

 
 
 Her Kyoto and Origami Bloom Collections
 feature her own hand-painted fabrics
set into sterling silver.
She explains that each piece is decorated with red thread
 because red is a symbol of good luck in Chinese culture.
 



Prepare to be surprised at the range of work
she has created.
There are dozens more designs to see
at Yu-Ping Lin's website.
