gold and silversmithing

“I admire the new tech world and what this industry has evolved in; however i crave to stay in the true authentic form of goldsmithing by keeping it traditional with old world techniques just as my mentor has guided me. lets be honest i never began making jewellery this way, i learned it only years ago under his wings, and i vowed i would keep his legacy going and one day if the opportunity arises i would share my knowledge to someone that can appreciate the value in hand made. although these traditions are not lost, they are fading and i would like to keep them alive by passing them on”

cleopatra collection autumn 2017

a unique hand carved gold collection, maintaining the traditional goldsmithing technique for authenticity

while working with the first prototype, she exhibited qualities of Egyptian Pharaohs - exuding the illusion of opulence, sultry & power
an exquisite piece to work with, she challenged me in her design; her curves, her strength and she demanded perfection!

hence Cleopatra's abundant ruthless life came to mind
a captivating woman of great physical beauty and seductive skills; an intelligent, multilingual, female fierce ruler who affirmed her right to rule Egypt

although history writings depicts her life as one of sadness rather than glamour, for me she signify's a goddess ♥
