Misun Won Jewellery

South Korean born jeweller Misun Won is inspired by traditional Korean wrapping cloth, Jogakbo, and its scientific interpretation of fractal geometry. She wants to associate the beauty of rhythmical structure from Jogakbo with her jewellery using a ‘patchwork’ of circles and ovals. She makes a variety of structures and patterns from one sheet of silver, creating playful forms on their own or with gemstones and other materials, such as Korean braided silk cord. She also applies the ancient Korean technique of Keum-Boo (24ct gold foil) to her jewellery to maximise the complexity of patterns and structures.
