Yoona Birthday 2020: Pandora Deer Yoona

“The Greek mythological story of ‘Pandora’s Box’ teaches us the significance of self-control and self-discipline that can keep us away from the evils in the world. It also assures us that at the end of the day, there is always Hope – despite the severe storms of challenges, and when everything seems so dark and bleak. Never lose Hope, especially while overcoming the challenges of life.”
Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
“The reason so many intelligent and creative people suffer from depression is that when you take the risk of being fully conscious, you open Pandora’s box, and you can’t close it again.”
Michael Redhill
“Hope is a force that carries you through life’s dark twists and tangles.”
Angie Weiland-Crosby


This year, I want to make something quite different from my past years’ birthday artworks for Yoona. While the deer concept for Yoona remains unchanged, the materials I am going to use are related to jewellery making this time. This idea is largely inspired by the fact that Yoona has been the endorsement model for the well-known Danish jewellery brand, “Pandora” since 2018.

I have an idea to twist and turn my rose gold plated jewellery wires that I have at home into a pair of deer horns on top of Yoona’s head. I had already experimented with this method first on my #63 MONTHSARY: CYCLING WITH THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AT ECP artwork last month where I turned a piece of silver jewellery wire into a double bike for me and Taenggu. As it worked quite successfully well, I will be using the similar technique on Yoona’s as well. Not only that, I will decorate her horns with some elegant swarovski crystal pearls too!

So let’s get started! 😙

Original photo of Yoona I have chosen for my artwork is taken from her following instagram post.

Presenting to you more detailed photos of my completed artwork! I love how minimalistic it looks to me. It’s an epitome of simplicity and elegance, just like Yoona herself! 😍

Deer Yoona,

Hope you like my artwork for your birthday this year too!

May you continue to shine and sparkle brightly like your PANDORA jewelleries! ✨✨✨
Love you deer. ❤️

Handmade with love,
