What I realized as an artist is that there are very few collectors in this market. In particular, people often find it difficult to understand the work made with diverse materials other than precious metals or gems. Sometimes I think there is a wide gap between the maker and the consumer who actually buys the work. I would like to close the gap so that new customers enter the world of contemporary jewelry little by little. I’m in the stage of contemplating how I can do that with my work.
