LAMA HOURANI at JA NYC Summer show


Nadwah - 23 July 2009


NEW YORK (July 20, 2009) - Lama Hourani, Jordanian international jewelry designer, will be showcasing her jewelry for the first time at the 2009 JA New York Summer Jewelry Show from July 26th to July 29th. Booth 1213A in the Designer Section of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.



Designing and producing jewelry since 2000, she opened her first art gallery and jewelry shop in 2004. All pieces are original creations, handmade as either a masterpiece or part of a limited edition design.
Celebrating both shared heritage and modern diversity, her collections are imbued with the traditions and civilizations of the past, re-cast as stunning amulets for the future. Lama Hourani is inspired by the primitive etchings and drawings adorning the walls of the caves throughout Jordan's desert as well as the country's rich archeological relics. The symbols are familiar, explicable and become a universal language that conveys freedom of expression, peace and unity without ethnic, cultural or religious barriers.
Lama Hourani will be featuring the following "art-to-wear" collections:
Lamystique - Lama's signature circles, an interpretation of primitive cave drawings
hand-stenciled on silver, gold or gold-plated discs.
Gypouin Revue - This collection is inspired by the native Gypsy and Bedouin jewelry
made with simple materials.
Bedu Chronicle - Multi-layer chains of different lengths and thicknesses embrace
charms with fine details.
Talisman ALAMA - Lama's charms contain stories and mythology of the
Mediterranean reflected through symbols.
Oriental Song - Various cultures in one mold - from Asia's South East to the Middle
- this collection is set with hand-carved jade from the mountains of South East
Unlock - This collection is inspired by ancient and modern keys, ancient coins,
archeological relics and totems of the desert to create the collaboration of old and new.
Geo-rustic - Incorporating her primitive symbols with geometric spheres, cubes and
discs on thick chains and tassels with semi-precious stones and Japanese silk.
Lama Hourani has been designing and producing jewelry since 2000, and opened her first art
gallery and jewelry shop in April 2004. She holds a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, as well as
two diplomas in jewelry design and gemology from GIA. Additionally, Lama holds a master's
degree in Product Design from Istituto Marangoni in Milano, Italy. She currently resides between
Milan and Amman.
