my first visual language is Korean which is very geometric and the process of geometric expression is sometimes harmonious or contradictory.  Harmonious aspects include concepts like construction, symmetry, arrangement or refinement.  Contradictory aspects incorporates ideas of deconstruction, asymmetry, confusions or disorder which may appear unconventional in terms of jewellery design‘. (Jin-Ah JO)
