Sara Chyan explores the unique temperature-aware colour and geometric shapes of bismuth to create stunning one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces.
Bismuth is an unusual low-melting point metal. It is commonly use in fire detection systems, electrical fuses, stomach medicines, cosmetics and pigments and bullets. But we use it in jewellery. The oxidation of bismuth is spectacular, where natural crystalised forms and colours can tell us the temperature. One colour represents one temperature, so it makes each piece exceptional.
Sara Chyan founded her company in 2018 based on a project she began whilst studying for her Masters in Jewellery & Metal at the Royal College of Art.
The project has already won numerous international awards and has been featured in several high-profile magazines.
