Statement

Beyond the consideration of preciousness and non-preciousness, we need to question how the material can act storage of ideas. The ideas might not only be focused on gold and silver, but also can be with things that surround us daily and how these materials can be alternatively considered. Without the restraints of high value materials there is the freedom to face the common perceptions about jewelry. Jewelry itself has a great value, but mostly this value depends on what materials it is made of.

But I think jewelry can be made from any other materials such as natural and man-made materials, wood, stone, glass and metals and so on. For example, when people think about rice and beans, the first thing that comes to mind is food-not adornment, not gold or silver. These grains are important for our nourishment and survival. To me, they have a sort of beauty to them.
The purpose of my pieces are for viewer or wearer may appreciate values beyond the material. My practical works are made with rice, beans, found objects, paper and silver. One is clearly perceived as more valuable than the other. This will indeed lead contrasting combination to the wearer and everything that is valuable or not, in our perception, becomes valuable in a variety of way.
