Youngjoo Lee is an art jeweler and metalsmith in South Korea, and also a lecturer at Konkuk and Baekseok Universities. I was drawn to her contemporary pieces via Instagram where she shares photos of in-progress and completed work.  Have a look at just some of the creative ways she turns these organically-shaped paper sculptures into wearable art as brooches, necklaces and earrings.
