The sound of my breath calls my heart and wakes up my consciousness. I live the present by every breath I take. The present moment fades away quickly, but it becomes memories and those memories make who I am. Making jewelry is a journey to find my memories, which were made with my breaths. The jewelry made out of the memories start to form by themselves and make new memories.

My work starts with the most general and fundamental meaning of living, my breaths, and shed a new light on the meanings that jewelry can have. The pleasures of my daily life can be found in small things, and making jewelry is like an escape from the daily life.
