Jee Hye Kwon

I have been contemplating digital and analog technology and how I could interpret this concept in my jewelry, merging these elements with my passion for the natural world.
For this collection of work I juxtaposed angular hard-edged industrial lines with organic forms reminiscent of barnacles.

I hand carved these round encrusted forms in wax and then cast them in copper. The finished castings were too slick so I reworked, cut, etched and sanded each copper element, soldering them to my industrial structures, designed to sway and move with the wearer. /
