This very necklace was worn at one of the Vancouver Fashion Week Spring 2012's collection made by designer Jun Young Kim. The main inspiration behind his 8 piece collection was the dichotomy of Good and Evil in the human mind. I very much enjoyed making this piece, linking one jump ring to another.  It's funny, I have always worn jewelry that were either brass, yellow gold pleated, or simply just yellow gold. I personally never liked neither the gunmetal look nor the silver, however, after a couple of months into my first semester in school, I've noticed I started mixing all sorts of medias in my beading class. I came across chainmailing, and it is one of the techniques I enjoy the most! :)

Vancouver Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012

Vancouver, B.C. Canada

On March 22nd 2012, Vancouver Fashion Week presented fashion design students Byron Abad, Autumn Egeskov, Eunmi Kim, Jun Kim, and Nur Kurban, from LaSalle College International Vancouver. All the students' hard work was showcased through their collections, which opened the second day of Vancouver Fashion Week. The biggest industry players (top designers, buyers, editors, and other industry professionals) were able to mingle and network with the fashion design students and view their amazing collections on the runway. For my jewelry history class back in 1st semester, I have taken the opportunity to collaborate with Jun Young Kim and his wonderful collections. The main inspiration behind his 8 piece collection was the dichotomy of "Good & Evil" in the human mind. I'm a very independent individual so I was a tad nervous to work with another designer. All around, it was a very exciting experience.  I look forward to working with other designers from all around the globe, looking at each and every one of their unique style in fashion and at the same time, working towards their needs in fashion accessories. 

Here are some of the photos taken during the show:

What's your nature spirit?

Nature inspired 4 Stackable rings in Silver.

Art Is Life.

 Art can be defined as the product of human creativity. To break these words down, it would come down to a lot of things. Our own imagination, dreams, reality, actions you take, the consequences, both good and bad outcomes, lessons you learn, music, things you feel and perceive, life itself and the list goes on... 

Life is Art. 


We all have own style and produce an artwork to illustrate the viewers what our aim is for that specific piece. With every chance I get, I try to express my feelings and my intentions through my work. I strive to be an artist in this world with great talent and ample resources. So by being in jewelry design program at Lasalle College Vancouver, I intend to blossom my passion for jewelry into a mature artist!

I hope you enjoy my creations! :)
