3D Printing Jewellery Aesthetic Fears

Conceptual, sensual and beautiful jewellery capable of producing a strong emotional response.


Currently studying for an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery at the Royal College of Art, London, Dorry Hsu originally trained as a conceptual photographer at Emily Carr Art & Design University in Canada.

Her approach to jewellery is also conceptual but her designs do more than stimulate the imagination; they are also sensual, beautiful and capable of producing a strong emotional response.

As with her Tao Jewellery, Dorry Hsu’s new collection: The Aesthetic of Fears presented in Folio, aims to create jewellery which carries meaning and has symbolic value.

Dorry explains ‬“ ‬my collection is about the aesthetic and the attraction of fears. I am interested in the concept of masks. In many cultures, people wear mask to scare evil away, so the mask are decorated with the frightening images from the wearers fears.” ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

She carries on describing the pieces of The Aesthetic of Fears as objects that “reflect self fears with the bugs of many legs”. These objects can be worn in different ways. They are created using Stereolithography; Dorry 3D prints a liquid photopolymer resin to which she adds handmade dyes. Dorry creates not only jewellery that can be worn it multiple ways; it is also multifunctional. The concept behind the collection goes quite far as she imagines that in the future one of these functions might be to assist humans in expressing their emotions. A new synthetic gem stone developed by science might sense human emotion and communicate them by changing colour.‬‬‬‬

In 2013 The Aesthetic of Fears was a finalist for the International Talent Support ‬with the Swarovski, ‬and Swatch Projects.‬‬‬‬
