SHADOW RINGS [‘Something Precious’ MAIN-PROJECT OF THE FIRST TERM IN SEPTEMBER IN 2016]

By Taekyoung Yun

My favourite piece of jewellery is ‘Shadow Ring’ that was my first design since I started focusing on my major at School of Jewellery. This project called ‘Something Precious’. I really considered on what is my something precious? My dream? Family? And any objects surround me? It could be anything for me.

 

I explored my something precious deeply and found ‘Shadow’ that might have secret because it seems to hide its own precious/ identity. Shadow makes me observe in depth and different ways which means that I can imagine unique shapes and create my own original jewellery from the shadow. I flashed a light in shadow in several perspectives and found patterns. I used one of the from my experiment as the main part and made the big piece of shadow ring because I wanted to express how I imagined with the shadow and looked any objects in different ways. So, when you look at something through the ‘Shadow Ring’ you will see parts of the object in different ways or you might see any interesting part of the object that you have not expected.

TEA SET [MID-PROJECT OF THE SECOND TERM IN FEBRUARY IN 2017]

By Taekyoung Yun

From the second term, I learnt about essential batch production techniques such as lathe, vacuum forming, spinning, laser cutting, wax carving, sublimation, and riveting, materials and processes to enable the design and manufacture of a range of products.

By using the lathe which is very useful and handy to design, I was able to create the unique spoon handle. On top of that, it was the first time to try wax carving. I was really enjoying when I engraved my design, sorted some problems out, and used different types of wax to decorate on my wax design.

By Taekyoung Yun

Vibrant Connection project was based on ‘Repetition’.Vibrant Connection project was based on ‘Repetition’ which was a really interesting idea. From my primary research, I had an interest in repeated and gothic patterns of tiles and walls in Spain. One of them has round in the centre and diagonal and curve around the main round grabbed my attention. I found the patterns could be separated by I managed to develop my ideas and designs for this final piece of my jewellery.

FONTUS RING [MAIN PROJECT, PROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION PROJECT ‘HORTICULTURE OF THE THIRD TERM IN MAY 2017,]

By Taekyoung Yun

I found a shape of the cactus that I chose looks lively. The shapes are connected to each other in almost infinite combinations. Horticulture has a long history in Britain, Horticulture Week Magazine is celebrating its 175th year of publication. Like the cacti’s infinite combinations, Horticulture Week will continue infinitely.
