Our work focuses on giving new life to everyday objects found in the traditional Lebanese living room such as candles, nuts, matchsticks and traditional furniture. We have made it our mission to give these elements a new purpose even after they’ve been used or consumed, consequently promoting a zero waste approach.

The permanent collections combine tastes and textures that come together to form a portfolio of handmade jewels that cannot be easily reproduced. No molds are used in the process, which means that no two pieces are the same. The final work merges different cultural influences, local and foreign, enabling a fresh mix of contemporary and classical styles.

The common denominator of my jewellery is that all of the pieces are made from wasted materials that have lost their function after use. I use the body as a canvas to give them a new meaning both aesthetically and conceptually, giving them the value that they deserve.
