A South Korean contemporary jewellery artist, Myung Urso, is exhibiting her latest work “Signature” at the Velvet Da Vinci Gallery in San Fransicso, CA from February 1 – February 29, 2012.

Before becoming a jewellery artist she had already studied Biology, Fiber Arts, Museum/Gallery Management and has also worked as a contemporary art curator. What a busy lady she is and what fantastic pieces she creates!

Assisting my elderly mother with hand sewing and the traditional ways for the preparation of food helped to shape my hand skills. The shaping of rice cake and arranging vegetables for winter storage enhanced my visual aesthetic. My previous work experience as an editor/reporter and art curator has broadened my knowledge and interpretation of contemporary jewelry.” Myung Urso

Calligraphy and sewing serve as my fundamental techniques, which I have practiced throughout my lifetime. Calligraphy has always fascinated me in how the brush stroke touches and enlivens the surface of a paper or fabric. Black ink lines and patterns often reveal meaningful symbols, letters or poetic landscapes.” Myung Urso

The collaboration between metal and various fiber materials enhance my ability to create. Materials have their own character and offer many unique shapes, colors, patterns and textures. I challenge myself to emphasize the special characteristics and beauty of materials while expanding the boundaries in creating an original identity for my jewelry art forms.Myung Urso
