“My work began with our daily life full of disposable items. The disposables we meet every day are considered as non-precious materials and are used only once then discarded. I thought we could make beautiful jewelry with non-precious materials, even with the discarded materials. This is why I started working with recycled cans, disposable materials.
I think people, including me, have a responsibility to protect the nature of the planet we live on. I will continue to make jewelry from discarded materials such as plastic or plastic bags as well as recycle cans. However, I want my work to be treated not just as a reused item, but as beautiful jewelry that everyone wants to wear.”
