Cho Ying Ng (Suzy)
Trash and Treasure

Cho Ying Ng has transformed plastic waste into wearable jewellery. Plastic waste has is a huge problem, invading the biosphere and disrupting the functioning of biological systems.

Using materials derived from supermarket food bags Ying creates works of recycled, reused and repurposed waste with a distinctive voice which transcends their physical form. In doing so, Ying explores the perceived value of combining man-made materials with wearable jewellery, raising awareness of synthetic materials and their potential. whilst offering a pathway to reduce plastic waste.

Although Ying believes that having 100% sustainable practices are an unattainable goal, she hopes that projects like these will encourage more plastic recycling, reducing marine plastic pollution.
