Jin Ah forms perforated mild steel, often used for industrial or architectural purposes, into sharp geometric structures retaining its original character and qualities. This transforms the steel from its manufacturing origins into a wearable piece of contemporary jewellery that explores form and space. Jin Ah moved to Australia in 2000. Her use of diverse materials such as steel and silver, moulded and shaped, creates unexpected forms that can be read as reflecting Jin Ah’s cultural experience of relocating from Korea to Australia.
Each of Jin Ah’s pieces is handmade and original. Your individual piece will resemble the image shown, but pattern placement and exact details will vary. This adds to the unique story of your handcrafted item.
