Artist Xiatong Guo was born in a small city in eastern China and embarked on her design journey at Savannah College of Art and Design. Currently, she is completing a master's degree in jewelry. She chose this path because she found jewelry to be a language: an interesting, multi-layered, unrestricted, and boundless language. It became her way to share. The more she takes in, the more she seeks to express and “speak” to others through this language.
