Balancing Act I:
Strong women in today’s world inspire me. As a person, I hope to
exhibit both strength and fragility at the same time. My jewelry
creation is no exception. A balance between feminine and masculine
qualities is the heart of my design.
The complexity of today’s women inspires my design. Women could be
warm or cold, confident or vulnerable depending on the situation.
The metals used in my pieces demonstrate these qualities: yellow
gold being warm and vulnerable while sterling silver being cold and
confident. The contrast in the use of the metals is sometimes

Balancing Act III:
Being a born Buddhist, I try to live my life in moderation. There’s
no extreme at either end. Exaggeration is not what I intend to
represent, nor is blandness. I was taught to be content with what I

society I live in. I hope to pass my socially responsible thoughts on
to my pieces. It is the soul of my designs.
