object fetish fridays : Jung Ja Lee

There are many artists who have amazing textile abilities but they don't always translate these abilities into jewelry successfully. Artist, Jung Ja Lee manipulates her textile techniques to create a whole piece from beginning to end instead of mixing her delicate work with an awkward chain or pre-made findings. And this is why I love her work. 

The work is hers from beginning to end. She doesn't compromise her design to fit a finding. Jung utilizes her textile know how to create chain and to connect her handmade components. 

I also love the feminine colors. Her palette is the perfect match for her delicate neck ware. It is reminiscent of decorative collars made for large swirling dresses.  

Jung's construction is always interesting. It is playful yet still feminine. And I love it.

happy friday! what are you up to this weekend?

  1. This jewelry is amazing - it's hard for me to even picture what the construction process is like. And is it all felt? Thanks for the great find!

  2. Looking at her materials it seems that she doesn't use felt. Satine ribbon and muslin fabric were used on some. Her work is just amazing. Thanks for reading!

  3. I'm wondering about the material as well - but whatever it is, the pieces are really stunning! A great find!

  4. It's such a fresh take on incorporating textile techniques in jewelry. So different from weaving or knitting wire.


I would love to read what you have to say!

thanks for reading!
