Muneera Hamed Alsharhan is an artist who specializes in jewelry. She focuses on creating contemporary and art jewelry.
“Jewelry has always fascinated me. The powerful connection people can make with them; their capacity to hold and represent our secrets and our dreams. I enjoy creating a world, a story or a history through these objects. I hope that people who wear my work will be creating their own stories as well. The things we choose to put on our body say a lot about who we are. My pieces command attention alone, and when worn, shift the authority to who ever is wearing them.”
Muneera graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Rhode Island School of Design in 2011. In 2012 She won the Sheriffs de Mode Award in Eclat de Mode Jewelry show in Paris. Alsharhan was part of Out of Kuwait 2013 which showed in Edge of Arabia Gallery in London part of the Out of Kuwait exhibition hosted by British Council, Royal College of Arts, Contemporary Art Platform and The National Council for Culture, Art and Letters. Muneera also is a recipient of the Young Designer award from The Arab Woman’s Award Kuwait 2016. She is currently doing a research based Masters of Arts in Central Saint Martins, London.
