The main goal with this project was to make a cuff that does not have size limitation. The biggest challenge was choosing a clasp. A clasp was integral but it limited size. Therefore, the project was aimed to design a clasp and a cuff as one object. While researching, the design was inspired by structure of a car suspension and a train stopper. The idea was to make the main body of the cuff. It has 2 compression springs in both sides. When the cuff is tried to be worn, 2 wrist holders on both sides open and it fits automatically variety of wrist sizes.

Jimin Jung

Jimin Jung was born in 1990 in the Republic of Korea. He has studied crafts and industrial design in Philadelphia. He began his exploration of jewelry at university. His design philosophy comes from modernism and minimalism. Creating work that is out of the ordinary and proving that not only expensive stones and materials make good jewelry are the significance of his design.


His design practice is informed by modernism and minimalism and driven by material exploration. He utilizes both traditional and contemporary designing and making skills to bring form to his artistic vision. Instead of making works from found objects, every element of his jewelry has been designed and engineered from blank blueprints. All of his jewelry is comprised of multiple geometric elements and married into abstract modules that repeat in order to create an elaborate form. The design process then pushes the limitations and error range of the technology he is using to achieve a dynamic form composed of simple elements.
