DIYs can take more time than you think. For Yoorim, it took a total of 216 hours to craft the pieces. It also took an immense amount of trial-and-error creating a process and prototypes. "I watched so many YouTube videos," Yoorim says. "I even went to an auto windshield shop and asked them to teach me how to cut glass. I made really bad prototypes and even burnt my hair! But weeks later I was able to refine the prototypes and make presentable items."
