Alexandra Hakim

Skills Needed:


Alexandra Hakim is a British-Lebanese jewelry maker and designer whose innovative craftsmanship, thought-provoking designs and dedication to sustainability have gained her an international following. She completed an Art Foundation course at Central Saint Martins before gaining a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she focused on design innovation and developed her experimental making process.


She moved to Beirut, Lebanon, in 2016 where she launched her brand and immediately infiltrated the jewelry scene, gaining the respect of the predominantly male industry of craftsmen and goldsmiths, thanks to her technical prowess and unique methods.


Each of Alexandra Hakim’s collections centers on found materials and consumed objects which would otherwise go to waste – often straight from Lebanon’s local food markets – but which, in her hands, are given a new lease of life and meticulously repurposed into striking, contemporary handmade pieces.
