The FforFarah jewelry experience is one that redefines traditional aesthetics and ornament, questioning the object’s form, materials, wearability and function with a primary focus on it’s relationship to the body.
Founder, creative director, and metalsmith Farah Abdelhamid approaches all facets of FforFarah with artistry and perfection as she handcrafts each unique piece in Sterling Silver and 18k Gold, experimenting with a variety of other materials, all from her Cairo studio.
With a background in interdisciplinary mediums, art curation and a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, Farah’s profound conceptual research, attention to detail, knowledge and courage in re-designing methodologies and materials, distinguish her as a leading jeweler and advocate for contemporary jewelry in Egypt’s art market and across academia.
Reaffirming her ethos and active role as a maker and educator, Farah couples her commercial, conceptual and collaborative portfolio by participating in international exhibitions since 2013, including Dubai Design Week 2017, Milan Design Week 2019, The Venice Biennale 2019, and London Fashion Week 2019, to name a few.
StudiowithFarah is the shared studio space where Farah mentors and teaches practical and theoretical jewelry workshops, allowing jewelry designers and enthusiasts to practice and develop their craft since 2015.
