Mary Lee Hu

“Mary Lee Hu uses twined structures in 18- and 22-karat gold to create extraordinary pieces of jewelry which are impeccably crafted. She has developed a double twining technique for her exquisite earrings, rings, brooches and neckpieces. Her elegant work explores intricate patterns and surface texture. She weaves with 18k and 22k gold wires, using multiple warps and wefts. “
