Do  not judge a book by its cover.


“My concept is inspired by a sentence: “Do  not judge a book by its cover”. An indistinct and subtle atmosphere can  illustrate our society which means there is no absoluteness to anything. I aim  to create a neutral area – peaceful but slight odd, fragile but strong and  smooth but rough. Jewellery is the medium I use to communicate my aesthetic  ideas. I explore juxtaposing  textures, which are desirable to touch, and so  evoke emotions. Visually  therefore, the conflict generates irregular three  dimensional patterns on my  jewellery pieces, while they all have the same  visual impact as they are all white. It creates a vague and abstract  impression in the perceptions of touch and vision”.
