Day5: Work 5. The well in my memory earrings.

I have been a contemporary jewellery sole practitioner since 2010. Even though I had one and half year of maternal leave from my bench between 2012~2013 I have created thousands of works so far and the reason I started this project is to make something new at least.

I have to know what all this really means and I need to rebuild my identity as a maker by knowing what matters in the end. I really have to know… otherwise I feel like I can’t get there ever. I Don’t know where it will be however, even though I will not be able to get there I truly still believe all this process and new creation will do matter for me. Communicative and comprehensive!

These earrings are my memory of well in my childhood. Many houses used to have a well at the backyard in Korea when I was very little. The water was delicious and so cold I remember..If I think in that way the colour should be blue but I am thinking green, violet or purple.
