Artist's Statement

My aim is to explore the aesthetic value of combining non-traditional materials(elastic and cotton threads) with precious metals(Gold and silver), cultural forms and expressions, and to bring a personal colour to these experiments.

I am inspired by fields such as fashion and textiles, by combining disparate non-traditional elements to see the effect of their interaction and by the blending of moments from journeys across Europe with traditional Korean culture and craft.


Ultimately, I hope to reflect my sence of beauty through my jewellery when it is worn on the body.
