Maralah-2012//Born during an earthquake- The Maralah collection uses classic jewelry making techniques and materials to fashion pieces that contain elements of geometric symmetry while capturing the charm of the tribal spirit. The visual research for the collection focused on the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The pieces are made to perfection before exposed to destructive forces, manipulated and reworked during their journey towards completion. The collection displays strong edges in a centered frame incorporating crystals housed within the metals. A repeating motif is the addition of fringes, complementing the centered structures with a swinging movement.
