Jina Seo is the Assistant Professor of Metal and Jewelry at Missouri State University. Her practice explores the relationships between body, garment, desire, and space. By transforming materials into symbolic wearable objects, she creates a visual dialogue that uncovers the hidden intimate and sensual power. She earned her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kookmin
University at Seoul. A recipient of the Fountainhead Fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2016, she was also chosen as one of the SNAG Emerging Artists 2016 at SOFA Chicago and received a Gold Award for the
ITAMI International Craft Exhibition in 2010. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including Munich Jewellery Week 2017.

Explore nontraditional materials – domestic, natural, edible, fabric, leather or found objects – to create a wearable artwork that reveals the beauty of the mundane. Investigate methods to incorporate alternative materials with metal components. This class will cover the basics of cold connecting, basic settings, and pin mechanisms. Beginner to
advanced students are welcome.
