Presently, Mei See Liang-Jackson's work is inspired by aspects of human nature; an exploration into the way people behave, their beliefs, their way of life-------an attempt at unveiling the subconscious thoughts which may be driving conscious decisions.

Her jewellery departs from conventional jewellery making. The works are beautifully crafted sculptural forms which are seductive to the eye and empowering to the wearer.
