ROOTED X STILNEST

A few weeks backs I mentioned the collaborative jewellery project I was working on with STILNEST, a ‘Berlin based publishing house for 3D printed designer jewellery’ and it’s ready for you! We launched it just last week and you can check out the full collection here.

I took a look at myself for the inspiration behind this collection. Where I’m from, what I’ve built with Sid and what I’ve become. And so I felt ‘ROOTED’ the name of the collection fit. A reminder not to forget your heritage and a push to celebrate it, revel in it.

“Rooted is a collection representing my roots: a touch of Egypt mixed with a bit of English as well as a reflection of the bicultural union of me and my husband Sid, who is a British Pakistani. The collection is about encouraging cultural diversity and appreciating the beauty in the differences that cross culturalism brings to humanity.”

Take a look at some classic Egyptian\middle eastern jewellery, traditional pakistani pieces and notice the common bright yellow tones used, the intricate detailing in chunky pieces. I tried to reflect a mix of both cultures infused with the simplicity and minimalism of european design.

Each design is 3D printed, sterling silver and gold plated.

Enjoy
