The Mukani II collection is a continuation from my research I did with my previous Mukani collection. In the Mukani pieces I used unglazed porcelain, camel wool, cotton, silver and colored sapphires. I wanted to show the confusion and longing I felt towards my history while being separated from it. I created Mukani II in Kuwait after I relocated back here. Understanding and learning about the country’s history while I was here in Kuwait gave me more of a clarity and connection to the past. For this collection I wanted to represent both our lost seafaring life and the vanished mud brick houses of the Kuwaiti people. I chose to use wood, pearls, mother of pearl, porcelain, cotton and silk in this collection. They are set in 18 carat yellow gold.
