STATEMENT OF ART:
I reject the perception of jewelry as a mere accessory burdened by unnecessary details and overly complicated flourishes. KONZUK jewelry, with its highly personal elements such as a subtle use of color and an innovative use of materials, is faithful to the clean, minimalist aesthetic of contemporary industrial design and architecture.
