'I have used the circle to develop a variety of complex, handmade contemporary jewellery forms in silver, based on the idea of Korean patchwork. Using a 'patchwork' of circles, I make rhythmical structures and patterns from one sheet of silver, creating complex forms on their own or in combination with other materials such as colour thread and silk cord, creating beautiful, wearable jewellery'
