Jude Benhalim goes digital

CAIRO – 4 February 2018: Jude Benhalim explores the gap between wearable art and wearable technology in her latest contemporary collection ‘Digital Citizen.’
Wires, springs, and the revolving hoops show how tangled the world that we live in is. The statement one’s jewelry makes can say a lot about how that person lives their life.

The 23-year-old Syrian-Libyan designer said in a previous interview with Egypt Today that her jewelry is not for everyone and because of that, the typical Jude Benhalim woman is someone who wants to stand out by being edgy. Her pieces are a mixture of Arabic calligraphy and modern, sharp designs, combining crescent shapes with tribal, geometric lines.

Her designs also have a feminist touch, as she says she’s inspired by women who wear her jewelry and the strong women she surrounds herself with.

The collection is created from 925 sterling silver and gold-plated brass pieces put together by the hands of local craftsmanship, ensuring its high quality.
“Tangled wires, spirals, and hoops, are all fused with jewelry to become an artistic statement about the hold technology has over the human race,” Benhalim stated in a press release about the collection’s inspiration.
