About the Artist

Contemporary fine jewellery inspired by traditional head ornament, especially Korea and Britain.

I believe that jewellery is a dream which is power, wealth, hope and happiness. Jewels have compensated for three of mans basic insecurities: vanity, superstition and the desire for material wealth. Jewellerys glitter, colour and beautiful elements seem to stimulate mans spirit. I consider that what can be representing all of the peoples desire which is power, wealth and happiness. Then I found that could be a hair ornament such as tiara.

Materials include silver, non precious stone beads, fabric and thread with technique of intricate hand piecing, traditional jewellery making skills and beading.
