« My artistic imagination transforms itself from life and nature. Painterly and sculptural jewelry forms convey personal stories and memories from life. The forms rendered through collaboration between metal and fiber reflects my interest for abstracting from nature. I challenge myself to emphasize the special characteristics and beauty of materials while expanding the boundaries in creating an original identity for my jewelry art form.« (Myung URSO , South Korea)

« Calligraphy and sewing serve as my fundamental techniques, which I have practiced throughout my lifetime.  I also found that my elderly mother’s traditional way for the preparation of food, such as the shaping of rice cake and arranging vegetables for winter storage, combined with my previous work experience as a reporter and curator for art and craft have shaped my own interpretation of contemporary jewelry. » (Myung Urso)
