With more than a decade of experience in jewelry making, British-Egyptian designer Adam Elwan has made a name for himself in Egypt.
His art deco-inspired work features multiple influences that span Egypt’s pharaonic as well as Islamic heritage.
Made in sterling silver and 18-karat gold, Elwan’s pieces are a reinterpretation of ancient Egyptian and Islamic motifs and symbols, from the traditional kaf (palm), eye or horus charm, and the Egyptian lotus, all the way to the exquisite arabesque pattern.
Hand-made by Cairo’s veteran craftsmen, Elwan’s pieces are typically inlaid with different materials, including mother of pearl, labradorite, abalone, and semi-precious stones, which together give his pieces a timeless uniqueness.
