Statement

In contemporary art, jewelry is diversifying not only in its materials but also in shapes and conceptual aspects. My formative experiments based on water and the property of nylon fibers are not merely molding images of jewelry but extend into experiments of surface strength and various technique research. It provokes imagination and reveals a modern sense of art to find a way of maximizing jewelries’ formative and plastic effects as an art form. Through this, I search for “jewelry as art, artistic jewelry”, a vitalizing agent in our everyday lives.
