My name is Shafiaa Elwakil and I’m an art lover; I search for beauty in everything around me.
I studied Architecture and worked in the field of architectural and interior design for several years.
Drawing, painting and craft-making were always my passion and by 2004 jewellery-making was my new passion.
I taught myself different techniques of silver jewellery-making, attended the basic class at Azza Fahmy Design studio to learn more about the essentials, and I spent a lot of time learning more and more techniques online.
In 2013 I started designing and making my own pieces based on the knowledge that I have acquired in addition to my architectural background and designing skills.
Most of my designs are inspired by either nature, architecture around me, or our rich culture and heritage.
I also aim to make high-end jewellery where every piece is a form of art, speaking poetry, illustrating art and every form of beauty around us.
I don’t make mass production; all pieces are handmade limited edition.
I also aim to introduce a new definition of dressing up to the modern woman where a piece of jewellery is a possession not just because of the materials used but also the art that it’s meant to resemble.
Every piece has a story behind it and is made with love.
