And A Warm Hello To....

The reception we hosted for our young designers was certainly a success, thanks in no small part to the musical stylings of the Jessica Stuart Few, and the team of supporters from George Brown College.

But more of that later. Let me introduce our fourth designers... Ji-Sung Han.

Born in Busan, South Korea, Ji-Sung found her first love of crafting in origami - folding coloured paper into flowers, animals, and decorative pieces.

After moving to Canada in 1998, her artistic impulses re-emerged, and she entered George Brown's J
ewellery Arts Program after graduating High School.

Rose Rings
18k yellow gold, sterling silver,

Rose Necklace
18k yellow gold, 14k yellow gold
sterling silver, pearls

Ji-Sung's work reflects and explores the relationship between flowing lines and evocative curves.

"My favourite piece in this collection, is the Rose Ring. This was the final piece that I constructed, I wanted to create my collection as a set, so naturally the Rose Ring complimented the other pieces beautifully. It is the ideal piece because all the knowledge I gained about gold, silver, and anticlastic forming."

And I think we would have to agree with her, these rings are stunning. And lucky for us, they are on display and for sale at our shop.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support these designers, and to everyone who has stopped by to take a look. These pieces will be on display until the end of September.

Don't forget to leave us a comment, and tell us what you think!
