Handmade Holiday – Victoria Chin

With a background in design, Victoria Chin is particularly inspired by the structure and
geometric forms found in architecture, which resonate throughout her work.

Victoria’s jewelry collection OXVC (Objects by Victoria Chin) combines ceramics and design.
Each piece is meticulously crafted. From geometric forms to its monochromatic palette,
every aspect celebrates the materiality and processes in ceramics.
