BEAUTIFUL JEWELS WITH STEEL WIRE PATTERNS BY HEEJIN HWANG

Heejin Hwang is a jewelry designer of korean origin, who lives and works in Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
Her wonderful work is about the tension between structure and sensuality. Her jewels are based on relatively simple patterns, assembled into complex sculptures, where organic shapes give way to almost architectural systems. Steel wire is used as basic material; the human body is the perfect context for her three-dimensional forms. Heejin says: "Only when the body ornaments are perfectly fitted to the wearer, you can start an emotional  and structural relationship. So, as people imagine building an ideal house, I guess I build my own house of jewelry on the human body ".
