My recent work comprises sculptural units in which steel wire is used as basic material. As the basic structure is needed to construct a building, numerous layers consist of a form in my works. As I discovered another layer of personality which I had not been aware of, I began to be interested in the figures of the layer and induce them to my works. When a unit or multiple units complete a perfect structure or form, my jewelry becomes powerful and comes to life.

Human body is the perfect space to install my jewelry on. Only when my works, the body ornaments, get perfectly installed on the wearer, emotional and structural rapport starts with the wearer.  As in architecture, the site and scale of my work play an important role as well. As people imagine building an ideal house of their own, I also pursue building my house of jewelry on human body, too.

My artistic imagination transforms itself from life and nature. Painterly and sculptural jewelry forms convey personal stories and memories from life. The forms rendered through collaboration between metal and fiber reflects my interest for abstracting from nature. I challenge myself to emphasize the special characteristics and beauty of materials while expanding the boundaries in creating an original identity for my jewelry art forms.

Natural forms, processes and movement inspire me to make jewelry.  When a natural form emerges from its environment, it follows no exact model as it becomes visible.  Forms from nature have mysterious origins which are incomprehensible to the human mind.  

We try to understand how and under which circumstances they acquire a life yet the creation of these forms remain invisible to the human eye.  My jewelry investigates the mystery of creation, capturing the moment in which the void and fragment become substance.
