Inspired by a classmate who lost her tools recently. Ruolin Zhang has created jewellery which explores the relationship between jewellers, their tools and jewellery.
As jewellery takes shape it is also a process of tool consumption. Jewellers replaced and substitute their tools during the making process, some for longer and some for shorter periods of
time. While the artist’s work is being admired, the discarded tools are left untouched. This experimental project, revalues discarded tools and defining them as jewellery, with a decorative beauty of their own.
