It all started when I was really young, I took an old prayer bead (masbaha) we had at home that I disassembled and used some string to create something new of. I used the stones, and changed the string and design to create a necklace.
As a child my grandmother caught out my passion for jewelry design and helped me nurture and develop the craft. We shared countless moments discussing gems, stones and different pieces. She would describe some of the most memorable pieces she’s seen in her time and I would try to imagine them in my head.
I also remember the days my family and I would walk through Downtown Amman. There, I always stood before shops selling semi-precious stones admiring their beauty and imagining what I could create with them.
After I graduated from university with a degree in Media & Communications, I decided to pursue my passion for jewelry and take an intensive course in Florence, Italy.
The collection with Damas is the biggest thing I’ve ever done. For years, I have been creating designs for friends and family, but nothing on such a big scale.
