Farah Abdelhamid is a multi-disciplinary Egyptian artist with a passion for contemporary jewelry. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. Her work varies from producing commercial jewelry collections, conceptual interactive installations, collaborative projects and teaching in her studio and pop-up locations
All her work is designed and made by her, keeping the connection between wearer and maker intimate. Her research in contemporary jewelry challenges traditional social constructs about jewelry materials and forms, investigating the grey area between object and wearable object via the body as a source of inspiration. Jewelry goes beyond ornament, but rather is an experience.
Farah has been exhibiting internationally since 2015 in jewelry fairs such as Sieraad Amsterdam, art exhibitions and competitions such as Darb 1718 and Dubai Design Week, collaborations for London Fashion Week, and most recently featured in Milan Design Week and with installations in Venice Design as the first Egyptian to be featured in either, and both.
Located in the heart of Cairo, Farah's studio is also a shared space offering workshops and courses,
working to enhance the jewelry industry in Egypt.
