Cindy Chao The Art Jewel celebrates the induction of the stunning Peony Brooch into the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum

Cindy Chao’s reputation precedes her. Her designs—a unique collection of wearable art—have featured in prominent institutions the world over, from the Smithsonian in the US to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The jewellery artist has achieved a long list of accolades over the years, including the Outstanding Exhibit award at Masterpiece London in 2018.

And while she is no stranger to success, for Chao, having a piece of her work inducted into the collection of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is a dream come true and a privilege without compare. “It is indisputably one of my greatest honours,” she says.

Among the world’s largest and most famous museums, the V&A is home to an extraordinary collection of decorative and applied arts, design and sculpture. With 145 galleries spread across its more than five hectares of space, the V&A’s permanent collection comprises well in excess of 2.2 million carefully curated items.
