Fatma Mostafa is an artist and jewelry designer experimenting across a wide range of media.
In 2017, she founded her own jewelry brand. In moving through oil painting, embroidery, and photography, her work takes a multi-disciplinary approach, posing questions of our relationship to materials. She combines mediums and incorporates natural materials in both her paintings and designs. Her artistic background makes her think of her jewelry as pieces of art that she gets to share with others.
She has been part of many group exhibitions, The Girl’s Window in 2022, Roznama 8 in 2021, the “Lost, found, eternal” workshop and exhibition in 2018, and The Youth Salon in both 2017 and 2018.
Fatma Mostafa jewelry was born out of a love for fine art, fashion, and traditional crafts, like embroidery. Mostafa was introduced to embroidery by her mother, and as a young girl it was the first medium she was trained in but she never gave it much thought. Mostafa later pursued fine arts, and through oil painting discovered a fascination with colors and landscapes, and developed a curiosity for experimenting with the potentials of the medium. As she continued experimenting with different mediums, she rediscovered her love of embroidery and her interest in jewelry design, and in mixing both, she founded her brand. Like painting, the beauty of embroidery comes from the time, care and deliberate effort it takes to create a piece, she believes.
Through her work, Mostafa was taught to cherish patience and see the beauty in slowness as a piece unveils itself. She strives to create pieces that are original works of art, where you can clearly see the value and beauty of nature and the endless potential of patient human hands with colorful threads.
