She aims for simplicity in her jewelry which incorporates sterling silver and gems. “I like to create pieces that are not defined by tradition or boundaries, to free our minds and connect our hearts,” she says. “The process of creation from conception to completion is intimate and meditative. Each material has its own life.” Mi Jung is a graduate jewelry designer from the Gemological Institute of America and her work has been exhibited in numerous international trade shows, national jewelry design shows, as well as juried art and craft shows.
