After initially looking at the body of work that this young artist and jewelry designer was able to present a little while ago, we knew we wanted to get to know her just a little bit more. Muneera Hamed Alsharhan made her bazaar debut almost one year ago in our fashionality feature, and we couldn’t wait to explore her fun side in our truth or dare column. Since our first encounter with Muneera, she has gone on to participate time and time again at the wonderful Pretty Little Things show and then presented her fantastic first solo exhibition at Bayt Lothan producing incredibly rare and unique pieces.
Muneera Hamed Alsharhan is an artist who specializes in creating contemporary jewelry. She cites her fascination with it being the ‘powerful connection people can make with them’ and loves their ability to convey ‘our secrets and dreams’. A Rhode Island School of Design Graduate with a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, the artist continues to craft meaning into her bespoke work.
