Safiyeh Uddin is a designer and jeweler. Her philosophy for creating meaningful work has always stemmed from her fascination with finding beauty in the potential for the veil between the seen and unseen world to disintegrate and blur. Each design begins with materials that are familiar and grounded in this world, and ends with something that seeks to remind the wearer of that place between dreams and reality. Her process is fluid and full of improvisation, letting the materials dictate how to form and destroy them just enough so that they resemble long forgotten relics – unearthed in one’s dreams. Familiar yet unfamiliar, beloved all the same.
