Over a cup of tea or coffee we will start this experience with a chat about you and what you like. This conversation will help us form some raw ideas, which we will use to create a design together. Once the design sketch is complete, we will start making the jewelry. You will learn how to turn your design into reality using silver materials. Your ideas are key, and you do not need to have any prior jewelry making skills. Within three hours we will create a unique treasure, from initial design to completed product. After we are done, I can give you some pointers to explore the neighborhood, as well as give you information about Korea in general. Around the studio you can find many design stores, art studios, restaurants, and cafés.
I obtained a BA in Korean Folklore and a MA in Social Anthropology. While I have been trained as a cultural expert, I’ve always had a passion for crafts. I started my career as a jewelry artist in 2012, integrating cultural and personal meaning into my designs. Over the years I’ve participated in several art and fashion events in Korea and abroad.
Coffee or tea You'll have a choice of black, green, herbal, or traditional Korean tea.
Jewelry making tools I'll provide sterling silver sheets or wires, as well as all additional tools and packaging materials…
My studio 'Sterling Mag.' is located in Yeonnam-dong. The area was recently put in the spotlight with the opening of Yeontral Park. It is also considered part of Hongik University—which has a well-known art department—adding to district’s unique artistic atmosphere.
