STONE NECKLACE WITH ROUND FLORAL ARABESQUE & STONE DROP
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 necklace celebrates the motif which is set within gemstones, and is unique in the combination of gemstones chosen, to make it a one-off piece.
