Born and raised Seoul Korea, Hyewon always knew she was destined to become an artist as she would create beautiful objects with her hands. With a background as a clothing and textile designer, Hyewon moved to Canada and studied in the jewellery art program at George Brown College, where she graduated with honours and won an award for her innovative and competent use of idea and materials.
She finds her inspiration in nature and architecture. Her eye for details and composition is evident in her delicately created pieces.
Currently Hyewon is a resident goldsmith at Jewel Envy in Toronto. She works in a variety of areas including fine jewellery, costume jewellery and art jewellery which are all created with love by hand.
