Grace Chin’s passion for craft began at an early age, admiring her father’s lifelong quest to understand the hidden properties of metal as a metallurgist with Bell Laboratories. She studied sculpture at Dartmouth College, then jewelry and metalsmithing in New York at Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology. It was in Manhattan that Chin introduced her first jewelry collection in 2004. Her work is inspired by the interplay of nature and architecture. Each piece is made by hand in her studio in Cleveland, Ohio.
