"I am interested in the phenomenon of the vitality of nature, and have examined ways to express this in my work. I sought to not only address the superficial substance of nature, but to express the values and nobility of life that is hidden."

Adopting the vitality of nature as a major motif, Lily's jewelry serves to express this idea in a tangible form. In her quest to capture the vitality in her work, she adopts natural imagery from cacti in the desert, wildflowers on a city pavement, buds on branches, seed pods, juicy fruits and shining stars in the sky. With elaborate design and fine craftsmanship, she brings her pieces to life.
