Every natural gemstones have their meaning, and they carry a spiritual significance.

Seeun Kim brings to you the lucky pearls symbolic of wisdom, serenity, royalty, purity, integrity and fortune. All the lucky pearls are for you!
Seeun Kim is a South Korean jeweller, metal craftsman and material researcher. She has trained in Japanese traditional handicraft skills and precious metals as an advanced specialist in Japan. Furthermore, as a Royal College of Art graduate, she has learnt a lot about the metal craft while attending college in England. She is a very strict perfectionist in her project.
Seeun Kim believes that the human hand is a gift from human evolution. Even though today there are advanced technologies, including the CAD and 3D printing industry, handicraft products have a rareness and beauty compared to mass-produced human-made products. Moreover, there is an inexpressible complexity in the handicraft world that a machine cannot imitate. Thus, she has decided to develop her works more broadly by striking a balance between the tradition and the modern. Moreover, most of her projects have dealt with diverse social issues in modern society.
