Yiran (Erin) Li was born in Shanghai, China. She is currently studying Jewelry Design at Pratt Institute as a junior student. Besides art and design, she is into outdoor sports and exploring nature. The sophistication and variations of the natural world influenced lots of her designs. Many of her works included organic shapes and silhouettes from nature and narrated the story of the human body. She thinks jewelry is a medium for people to express themselves toward the world, and each of individual piece has its soul and characteristics.
