Shamsa Alabbar's limited edition Buro 24/7 bracelet
Emirati, Dubai-based designer Shamsa Alabbar has established a career that's only going from strength to strength. Having recently released a series of behind-the-scenes videos surrounding her highly anticipated second jewellery collection, the young creative talent has also collaborated with the team at Buro 24/7 on a beautiful, bespoke bracelet style.
When asked to describe the inspiration and feel of the exclusive piece, Alabbar said, "It's a deconstruction of my letters to form new shapes – with an arabesque feel. This piece is a hint of my new collection that I am currently working on, still keeping it 'unusually beautiful'."Unusual beauty found in unexpected places is somewhat of a theme when it comes to said collections, with a keen focus on deconstructing the old and reconstructing the new – specifically concerning calligraphy and lettering.
"My brand is Arabic and remains Arabic, even in the smallest details and touches," describes Alabbar, before adding, "It's part of who I am and where I come from and I carry it with pride."
Just 30 limited edition Shamsa Alabbar x Buro 24/7 Middle East bracelets have been handmade in Dubai, and gifted to a select list of people, influencers and friends of the site to acknowledge and thank them for their support.
