Abdullah Interviews Dana Al-Nafisi

Everytime my senses are blessed with artistic exposure, all I think of is sharing that vision with everyone else.

A few months back we were honored to highlight some of Dana Al-Nafisi’s fine jewelry line on p0ach.com – I remember how women in my life were discussing how beautiful her pieces were, intricate, sophisticated, gold platted with  a hint of indian royalty. They urged me to have the beautifully talented Dana on p0ach’s front page. Glad I did.

Humans are wrapped with layers and layers of goodness. Dana may be a fascinating young woman with a beautiful presence, however her soul matches that and more. Inner beauty reaches its maximum level when talent & passion are mixed to serve humanity. She did that with her charitable efforts through the sales of her products.

Thats a small glimpse into Dana’s life.

Please go ahead, have a look at today’s interview, get to know Dana more.

Please introduce yourself Dana ?

Dana Al-Nafisi a young Kuwaiti jewelry designer that launched my collection in 2007.

Late 2009, I completed several courses at Central Saint Martins and the world renowned GIA, The Gemological Institute of America, which aided me to develop skills from experts in the field.

 

 

What inspired you to tap into who you are now ?

I have the passion for jewelry since I was little and this passion is growing with me. I’ve  used to design for myself simple daily jewelry pieces and I got really good feedback from family, friends and random people. 2007 I took an immediate decision without planning that I would like to give myself a chance in one of my friends solo expo by displaying my master pieces and the result turned out  good.

What differs you from the rest of the competition out there?

Focusing on introducing an innovative way to view jewelry through  unique and exquisite designs, which elucidate a story line behind each design to suits modern day lifestyle.

I have successfully participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions, where DANA NAFISI was able to personally interact with her customers and provide them with outstanding quality of jewelry, each with a distinctive style.

 

 

2011 Events: 

October, 2011. Speaker at Ghalia Club workshop.

October, 2011 Aziza Ya Kuwait Exhibition. Riyadh Four Seasons Hotel.

September, 2011. Eclat De Mode. Paris.

 

What were the difficulties you faced and how did you overcome them ?

I wont say difficulties ,but ill say challenges that I faced during my journey in that field.

Micro managing & putting my hands on every single detail.

Designing ,marketing my business, interacting with event organizers, customers, printers and workshops. As the business is growing and to overcome these challenges I have the ability to delegat and being visionary.

Lets go through your latest projects.
