I am always interested in things that hide beauty and clumsiness. My mother worked as a computer practitioner from my childhood. Therefore, The chassis of the precision components has existed in my memory. Electronic components represent data and information, named 'Aritificial intelligems'. Through creating sustainable electronic components jewellery, I aim to achieve an unusual goal, a private world that evokes our memories of traditional fine jewellery while retaining their own identity as a separate world.
Also under development is my "Data Garden" collection, which injects authenticity into designs to transform the energy of my audience, creates wearable pieces that wander on the boundary between the physical versus digital.
