I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

As most people understand, “wearables” usually involves some level of technology; be it a microprocessors that act as the “brain” of your piece, or thermochromic inks that disappear and reappear to reveal art or information, the mediums used in wearable technologies usually result with the display being on some kind of material. But what if we stretched the wearables box to include the human body as a canvas on which to display these advancing technological designs? An amazingly simple idea captured beautifully by Kyeok Kim’s Jewelry as a Second Skin has done it.The idea is marvelous and so cunningly simple. She takes her background in metal work and jewelry to create subtle pieces that illuminate delicate designs on your body. The bracelets, rings, necklaces and brooches stand strong on their own with meticulous style; but the added light show that moves and changes as the user does, makes this a must have in wearables-fashion.
Her line also features body-impression art  where rings and bracelets with carefully crafted hollow tips leave  an impression of  a quote around finger or arm. Who knew sleep marks could be beautiful? 
as quoted from here

"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman."

“..I am often accused for not listening, paying attention and concentrating. I have been told many times that I have a `Butterfly Mind`. I dont feel that this is necessarily a bad thing, my mind flits around and plays with all kinds of interesting and hopefully good ideas. Sometimes strange assosciations are made, things are created and fun is had. via
