Fragments

Abstract

My work comes from my understanding and perception of historical fragments. I think imperfection is a natural beauty, which exists everywhere in our lives. My perspective was influenced by a Buddhist theory called “Wabi-sabi”, and I referred to the method of “architecture renovation” to create my jewelry work. During the creation, I was also inspired by a jewelry artist named John Iverson, with his work influencing the many forms and techniques I used for this project.

I also adopted a different method of constructing material to represent my interpretation of my observation of “fragments.” In my heart, fragments not only belong to the past— they also belong to our current selves.
