STONE NECKLACE WITH FLORAL LARGE ARABESQUE
THE ARABESQUE COLLECTION
This collection pays homage to the ‘Arabesque’ in Islamic art: the application of interlacing geometric forms with sinuous forms of foliage and flowers. The geometric forms constitute an infinite pattern in composition, extending beyond the invisible material world.
For this design, I was inspired by Quranic manuscripts where a variety of floral motifs beautifully decorate in the margins at the beginnings of the suras, or verses.
This curvy and sinous design contrasts with the rigidity of the solid forms of the onyx stones.
