Is it resolution time yet? I think it is. But then as Randi said, I am in a rut- and everything I think or do or say is influenced by that...so it scares me. am too scared to make resolutions. And I can't even write in my journal! But since I didn't have a Christmas wishlist... I have one wish that I would have realized very soon!
I have always wanted to own one of these gorgeous pieces!
Aya El Rakhawy, is a lovely designer!
wearing her own design (earrings)
In our culture, the Kaf, is very significant...and I think it makes a beautiful addition to "oriental" jewelery!
A few examples of her brilliant pieces:
That little hand is the kaf! The Kaf and the blue eye and blue in general is believed to keep away the evil eye. I don't know if such beliefs are essentially Bedouin, or routed to the fellahin, or overall Egyptian. But you just find them all over traditional Egyptian jewelery.
Don't you just love this ring?
The one in the middle is my initial! I love these!
So I am going to spoil myself for new years and buy me some of her designs! There's no point of saving up, really...If any of you want to join me please do!! Here's a link to the event.
Maybe I just need to spoil myself. I have a very strong desire to be alone, but then I know that's never good...GAH!
What are your new year's resolutions?
What do you think of her designs?
