Meet Nuri Lee: Jewellery designer and Central Saint Martins graduate

Nuri Lee presented her line of rings Borrowed Landscapes at the Central Saint Martins degree show earlier this summer. I immediately thought of the British Library’s Fay Godwin collection when I saw her rings displayed in boxes lined with images of natural landscapes.

Nuri was inspired by how solid objects like windows and gates create negative spaces and influence one’s point of view and experiences of the outside world. She explored the Library and took photos of staircases and gates. “I was interested in the negative spaces of the Library’s gate on Euston Road and the beautiful shadows it created.”

She received a lot of great feedback at the degree show. “People wore the rings and enjoyed playing with the reflective view.”

Nuri wants to commercialise her designs and plans to attend our Business & IP Centre Beginner's Guide to Business Information workshop. At the moment she’s preparing for the Beijing International Jewelry Art Biennial.
