Alexandra Hakim Launches Her Debut Jewellery Collection

British-Lebanese designer and maker, Alexandra Hakim, launched her debut collection at BEYt Gallery in Beirut on December 27th 2016. Her collection draws from elements found in traditional Lebanese homes, collecting tastes and textures that come together to form a portfolio of handmade jewels that cannot be easily reproduced. No molds are used in the process, which means that no two pieces are the same. The final work merges different cultural influences, local and foreign, enabling a fresh mix of contemporary and classical styles.

 

Commenting on her collection, Alexandra Hakim said, “The common denominator of my jewellery is that all of the pieces are made from wasted materials that have lost their function after use. I use the body as a canvas to give them a new meaning both aesthetically and conceptually, giving them the value that they deserve.”

 

Alexandra Hakim’s work focuses on giving new life to everyday objects found in the traditional Lebanese living room such as candles, nuts, matchsticks and traditional furniture. She has made it her mission to give these elements a new purpose even after they’ve been used or consumed; consequently promoting a zero waste approach as well as reinforcing the importance of Lebanese heritage symbols in local design work.

 

During the launch, attendees were treated to a beautiful display that was perfectly integrated within BEYT’s charming interior.

 

The collection was made up from different base elements that perfectly capture our Lebanese heritage with a twist of modernity: Pyromania collection, Matchsticks & Candlewicks, Khaizaran Collection, Pistachio Collection and Enab Collection.
