The jewellery made by Eunmi Chun is bold and figurative. Each piece is a convincing likeness of an animal surrouned by foliage: sculptural portraits of a lion, a giraffe or eagles amidst all sorts of leaves. The objects are clearly intended to be worn, for despite their dimensions, they are light as a feather.
