Your fav pieces of jewelry and why?

“I’m working on a new collection called ‘Samaa’ which means the sky in Arabic. The sky is the universal blanket covers and protects all us all with no differentiation between color, race or any orientation. I’m also fascinated by the meaning and power of celestial beings, what they represent in many cultures, and the historical stories associated with them. The unchanging nature of the stars was used to regulate the daily calendar of the most advanced of civilizations. The stars were said to represent the souls of those who departed and are watching over us. The moon was used to guide the travelers on their convoy in the desert, to provide light, direction and sense of protection. I want this new collection to reflect the spirit of the greater protection and guidance that stem for the steady unchanging confidence in knowing who we are. We are the radiant stars, givers of light, providers of protection. We have a strength that can withstand the turbulence of life and shine brighter after the storms. I want Samaa to signify the grace and power that women hold and be a reminder to confidently live in a way that honors the gift we have, being a woman!”

Through my experience in working around the globe I’ve came to a conclusion of understanding and appreciation of the value of redefining our human connections.”

“I grew up around fashion. My dad pioneered the retail side of the fashion industry in Egypt. He built an empire of men and women’s clothing stores around Egypt and Paris, France. I learned from my dad to have an eye for beautiful things, to coordinate colors and designs. I’ve always loved unique designs and styles that project the personality of its wearer more than the popular trends of the year.”
