Statement

Jewelry is a language I’m using to speak art, much like painting and sculpture. My works are an extension of me. They are the tangible form of my thoughts and my feelings. In my works, I enjoy utilizing structures and layers, twisting lines to deconstruct space, and creating a multi-dimensional visual effect. Negative space is an important part of my work. Space doesn’t exist by itself, it’s not touchable and it doesn’t have mass. But with the material surrounded, we can create the volume of space. Seeking existence of void by using an entity to form nihility, that’s what I’m working on in my jewelry.
