By investigating the unique use of the circle in traditional Chinese gardens leads to the possibility of circular structures and jewelry design. The spatial story is reduced to wearable jewelry. Using miniature jewelry, a three-dimensional spatial structure is expressed. This three-dimensional spatial structure is threaded with circles, expressing stories from different time periods. In addition to exploring the multiple possibilities of the structure, the integrative use of materials is crucial. The combination of circular structures and various materials is used to express the past and the future. The combination of silver and enamel, silver wire and textile, and 3D printing, and silver are used to design my relationship with my surroundings and my connection with my former self, respectively.
