They are all from outside of Jewelry disciplinary.
It seems they do not share one common theme, but I felt some strong connections or ties to those people. I do not know how I am going to approach these people's idea into a wearable piece. I need to believe my first inspiration to them and challenge myself as well!!

working with a flower

I got a tulip and started dissecting it
pollens....powderly. Some cultures use these pollens to dye clothes.
I combined them with silicon. It was interesting.

making a silicon mold

I made a silicon mold. This was my first time to try.
There is an electroformed piece inside.
I really liked its tactile or tangible quality of silicon, little wet but solid and translucence.
