Hexagonal Kaleidoscope

Youjin Um

"My work is a form of healing," says Youjin Um,  a metal craftsman who creates jewelry.

To understand her work, "Kaleidoscope" is an important clue to her childhood memory. When each time kaleidoscope is shaken, it shows different patterns. This aspect is similar to her work, which expresses "The imagination that expends to various memories".
