Handmade Arabic script jewelry

Here are some of the handmade pieces I’ve created by cutting out names written in Arabic script. I started last year when I was doing a summer course at the Glasgow School of Art. In order to practice cutting metal, I decided to make a tag with my name in Arabic.

I really liked the result. However, I didn’t imagine that it would cause as much interest as it did. I started getting compliments from people that would notice it when I was wearing it and, before I knew it, I began to get requests from friends and acquaintances to make them one.

At the moment, I’m trying to find the best way to make more of these items using fair trade and/or recycled materials. I’m also working on other designs which I will be showing soon.
