Yesterday March 24, 2015 a private viewing of the ‘Silene’ Cuff by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with AWMouzannar was held at Qirdala, a jewelry shop in Tilal Complex, Shwaikh, Kuwait. The event showcased the cuff along with some of the finest pieces designed by Alia & Dori Mouzannar.
The cuff is made of 12 pieces and is encrusted with 1048 diamonds. The prototype shown is made of brushed white gold but can be ordered in either pink or yellow gold. The price was not disclosed, but what I got to know is that only 12 pieces will be made, 2 have already been sold.
“Silene expresses the fluidity and complexity of natural forms,” said Hadid. “An intricate web gently envelops the pristine white gold cuff resulting in a delicate piece that explores the evolution of organic geometries and patterning.”
I have been a big fan now of Lebanese Designer Nada Ghazal’s exquisite jewelry line and am very proud we have such great talents. In January 2012, Jewelers Circular Keystone (JCK), the most respected voice in the jewelry industry, has chosen Nada G Fine Jewelry to be featured as a Rising Star at the 2012 Las Vegas jewelry show, the biggest and best jewelry convention show in the world. Nada G will be taking this opportunity to officially launch a distinctive collection to the most desired audience in the business.
Visit Nada G, as a Rising Star, in the incredible Design Center at Booth S11104 from the 1st till the 4th of June 2012. Below I included a slideshow with her incredible work, notice the detailing and beautiful composition in every piece.
Pamela Love is an artist, jewelry designer, and drummer living and working in New York. She started her line in 2006 after working as an assistant to a painter. She gets her creative juices from tribal Indian and Africa, but this time, rather than channeling warriors, the jewelry is more spiritual, less violent. Pamela is inspired by religious imagery and traditional African and South American Jewelry. Every piece is handmade in New York.
