Jewelry designer and handmade designer Bena Alavi has created jewelry for a wide range of individuals, ranging from young couples to older women.
The 28-year-old Palestinian-born artist and artist in residence has designed jewelry for women, men, and even for people with disabilities.
Alavi began her career as a jewelry designer at the age of 16.
She is a member of the National Palestinian Artist Collective and the Alavi Gallery in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
The collection is now owned by the Alani Foundation, which helps to fund educational projects.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Alavi explained how her work can help people overcome the barriers they face in the field of fashion.
“I wanted to do something to give women a place to express their individuality,” she said.
“For me, jewelry is an opportunity to make my work accessible, to give people something to express themselves in and to celebrate their creativity.”
For her part, Alavs jewelry designer husband, Palestinian-American artist Saad Alavi, said his wife’s work is a reflection of his own journey as a person of color.
“Her work reflects who I am and what I do in my everyday life,” he said.

This piece is meant to make people feel something.”
Alavi said she decided to pursue her own career after the death of her father, a Palestinian-Israeli citizen, in 2013.
“My father died when I was only 13,” she explained.
“The first thing that I did was look into my father’s work.
I learned a lot about him.
Alavas jewelry is made from natural, organic materials, using traditional methods and crafts. “
He is a great artist, and I think it is important for us to acknowledge that there’s a place for all different cultures and different colors in our society,” Alavi added.

The pieces are handmade and hand-picked by Alavi herself.
“Most of my pieces are hand-crafted, which means that they have to be handmade by hand, using materials from a variety of sources,” Alavis said.
Alvi’s jewelry collection includes traditional Arab, Islamic, and Eastern Islamic jewelry, as well as contemporary pieces that incorporate jewelry and accessories made from materials from other parts of the world.
“When you see a piece of jewelry, you can see the story behind the design, the design that the designer has been working on and the passion of the person that made the piece,” she told The Washington Free Beacon.
“So when I look at a piece, it gives me hope that they can do it.
“A piece of glass, a piece that is made of metal, is beautiful, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a beautiful piece of metal. “
There are so many different ways that you can express yourself in jewelry,” she continued.

There are so few ways that a person can express themselves.
So the work that I do with my jewelry, it is meant as a gift.
It is meant for a gift exchange.
Alavi said her work is intended to be an outlet for her passion and that she hopes that the jewelry she creates will help others. “
And it is not meant to be the same as a piece you bought, but rather it is something that you created.”

“Sometimes, we have so many barriers that we have to overcome to find what we want to express in our life,” she concluded.
“Whether it is being discriminated against, whether it is living in a country that is under Israeli occupation, or whether it’s something that we want that we cannot find in our own culture, or in our country.
That’s why I love making jewelry, because it is such a beautiful gift. “
But if I could only find one piece that I could wear for myself, I would wear it every day.
That’s why I love making jewelry, because it is such a beautiful gift.
I think that I am inspired by my own journey, and what makes me want to be more than I am.” Read more:
