Intro
Change is the only constant.
 
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
Since artists are always inspired by Art, there will always be similarities. However, the individuality in Contemporary jewellery makes it far from standardized.

As my work reflects my character and background, then there will always be local flavor in it regardless of the different styles and techniques I apply.


What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I would hope that I can successfully convey the ideas that I set out to express in my work. I would also want them to like these ideas and buy the pieces.


Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
I enjoy incorporating sculpture into my work.


The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
Rio de Janeiro; a joyful city with a very positive vibe reflected in it's music and dance.


A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
The Far East.


Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
Chiam Soutine, Egon Schiele, Francesco Pavan, Giampaolo Babetto and many more.
 
 
What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
My Endure collection of rings.
 
 
Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?

Various jewellery books and online; Art Jewelry Forum, Current Obsession, and a few jewellery platforms.
 
 
Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Whenever I get the chance, as none of my jeweller friends live in Cairo. So it’s either Skype or meeting up abroad or in Cairo when they visit.
 
 
What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?, What do you expect for?

Improvement and development.
