About this project

This project is inspired by my obsession with heat, exploring the possibility of using temperature to assess one’s emotional state.

Temperature plays a major role in my project. Changes in temperature
can lead to changes in the physical forms of the chosen metal. This
transition between solid and liquid phases caused by temperature gives
metal an emotional characteristic, and transforms the metallic jewellery
into an emotional symbol.

Bismuth melts at 271.5°C, the oxidation of bismuth is stunning, where colour can tell us the temperature.

The application of gallium and bismuth is rarely seen in our day to day life. Their low melting points allow me to instill heat factor into my jewellery pieces.
