Tell us a little about yourself.

I had a Master’s degree in Veterinary Medicine and had worked in that field for several years. But I couldn’t give up the dream of art from childhood and became a painter. In 2016, I graduated from Academy of Art University major in Jewelry and Metal Art with outstanding records.

I love literature, traditional culture, and nature. I am good at extracting those elements and combining them with enthusiasm to my jewelry. My understanding and passion for life and my love of nature are resources of my endless great ideas and designs. When I was making jewelry or painting, I devoted my whole heart and soul to pursue the pure beauty. 

By calm, elegant, and abstract design, my jewelry expresses beauty, pure, peace, and goodness of life.
