This collection of jewelry was inspired by the common culture and history of the countries of Syria and Jordan.
Designed by Katherine in New York, it has been handcrafted by artisans in Amman, Jordan, through Turquoise Mountain foundation, a NGO founded at the behest of HRH The Prince of Wales. Turquoise Mountain has recently begun their incredible work in Jordan, and Katherine has worked with the Afghanistan outpost since late 2016.
This capsule collection showcases work by refugees from the Syrian Civil War who have found safety in the refugee camps of Jordan at the Syrian-Jordanian border and in Amman, where work is taking place.
Symbolic cultural motifs from the history of both countries include the eagle which has been incorporated into many of the designs of this collection. Each pieces is hand crafted from start to finish using traditional craft heritage and exceptional craftsmanship. The jewelry is made of Sterling silver, and a solitary semiprecious stone in the color red symbolizes the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan who is hosting these displaced and talented artisans.
Turquoise Mountain was founded in 2006 to invest in historic areas and traditional crafts, to provide jobs, education for skills, and a renewed sense of pride, to artisans in conflict areas by bringing their luxury products to international markets.
This collection is not yet available and coming soon.
