MYUNGJI YE BURLINGTON ARCADE MAYFAIR LONDON
I visited Glowing Lines exhibition organised by Myungji Ye at the Burlington Arcade in London. Myungji Ye has combined original design and strong identity with the modern. The point at which these two intertwine create the fabulous three-dimensional jewellery collection. Korean jewellery designer Myungji Ye was inspired by her mother, who is a great contributor to traditional Korean jewellery research.
I was delighted to try on Myungji Ye fabulous necklaces, tiara and even a crown created by an intricate 3D knitting method. This technique allows Myungji Ye to create voluminous shapes and the dynamic repeating lines found in her decadent pieces. I also enjoyed gemming traditional Korean hairpins, used as part of the formal hairdo of noble women, princesses and queens. See more for yourself:
