In the field of contemporary jewelry, symbol of material is very important. Since   jewelry artists break bounds of conventional idea to the jewelry, contemporary jewelry has been aware of new art. And now the contemporary jewelry artist tries to be focused on explaining artistic significance than it`s traditional meaning of material, which is related to the value of preciousness. The spectrum of material  is now extended over a wide range in the field of art jewelry, thus the territory of art is becoming more fertile.
Wood is one of the most familiar medium. They provide environment for human. So human regains their physical, mental security by wood, or is strong influenced on emotion. For those reason, wood(tree)has been symbolized as sacred subject.
So, we just express new aesthetic value through deep contemplation on wood.
