A cube has been developed from the small hidden spaces of Hee’s collections; the cube symbolises the simplified initial element of her constructed design.

Hee would like to show how the combination of each different angle of a cube can be a beautiful design, combined with organically shaped stones, such as Opal.

Misun Won is inspired by traditional Korean patch worked wrapping cloth ‘Jogakbo’, and its scientific interpretation of fractal geometry. Looking to the rhythmical structure found in Jogakbo, she works these patterns into her own pieces.

Her meditative making process is an act of prayer for the wearers, the act of imbuing auspicious qualities into her jewellery, parallels the wish of ancient Korean housewives who made Jogakbo for their families.
