Jounghye Park

Jewelry artist Jounghye Park was born in Seoul, South Korea, where she now runs a studio. The recipient of a graduate degree in Metalwork and Jewelry from Kookmin University, she has been researching the combination of fiber and metal materials to create new jewelry forms. She is drawn to silk for its countless color possibilities and its near-weightlessness—ideal for her jewelry, which emphasizes size and volume. After dyeing the silk, she makes small units that resemble the roots, stems, shrubs, berries, and thorns of plants. For Park, plants are beautiful and mysterious, capable of transporting her outside of herself, and it is this feeling that she seeks to share through her jewelry.
