The Jewelry designer of Hi June Parker, HyeJun has always had a budding interest
in violin and classical music.
When she met Metropolitan Opera violinist Katherine Fong at a reception
following one of Katherine's summer New York chamber music performances,
there was an instant bond between the two artists...
This is because Katherine had long sought an intersection between two loves:
the beauty of the violin and the glamour of fashion.
As the conversation unfolded, the signs at the intersection became
crystal clear. HyeJun went home to her sketchbooks and workbench,
and soon delivered to Katherine the first decorated
Pavé Ball tuner which was received with such enthusiasm,
Katherine and HyeJun joined forces to create the company Luxitune.
Since launching in 2012, demand for these elegant adornments spread
quickly through the MET Orchestra, and to violinists, violists and cellists
around the globe.
