Week 1: 24 – 29 September 2019
Week 2: 1 – 6 October 2019
Goldsmiths Hall | Foster Lane | London EC2V 6BN | www.goldsmithsfair.co.uk
Week 1, Stand 2
Yeena began her jewellery design as an exploration from her architectural background.
Yeena’s approach to design is through innovative use of materials in relation to the body in search of a new form and its material expression.
Yeena Yoon Studio is based in the heart of Hatton Garden at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in London.
Week 2, Stand 68
Kyosun completed BA Hons Silversmithing, Goldsmithing & Jewellery at University for the Creative Arts in Rochester, UK graduating in 2014 following a degree in Metal Craft and Jewellery from Jangan College, Republic of Korea. She is currently working in the UK in the workshop of the internationally renowned silversmith Clive Burr at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in London.
Week 2, Stand 50
Misun Won grew up in Korea and the influences of both countries can be seen in her work: a major inspiration is Korean patchwork, but this highly traditional form is interpreted through Western fractal geometry.
Misun graduated with an MA from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008, and went on to become an Artist in Residence and a visiting lecturer.
She has been exhibiting her jewellery in UK, Europe, and USA, shilst working from her studio in Edinburgh.
