Caiyang Yin (also know as Curtis Yin) is a contemporary jewellery artist based in the U.K, currently working as an artist in residence in School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University.

His work is not limited by any specific craft, format or material. Normally these elements are decided and composed by the needs of the artist’s core concept. Most of his work has a sense of sculptural aesthetics, in which both traditional and modern techniques are adopted to express the author’s ideas and feelings, especially the view of people’s statement of mind in this fast-paced society.

He insists contemporary jewellery should be the physical projection of the author’s idea, emotion or attitude. Therefore, contemporary jewellery pieces are created with very different motivations, they do not have to be aesthetically pleasing in general value if it makes enough sense.
