Congratulations to recent Cranbrook Academy of Art graduate, Eighteen Yuan (MFA Metalsmithing 2023), who was just named one of Art Jewelry Forum’s (AJF) Outstanding Students of 2023. Each year, AJF shares the work of one student from each of its member schools.

“Through my work I aim to map emotional landscapes of the human experience and provide a tangible connection to the concept of belonging, inviting the wearer to connect with their inner selves and the world around them through the intimacy of jewelry.” – Eighteen Yuan
