Influenced by the smooth specks of sand, which represent an element that often surrounds the everyday life of Egyptians in the most subtle way, Suhayla Al Sheikh has decided to put it under the magnifying glass in her own personal way.
The founder of Sandbox drifted away from her previous inspiration by resorting to the complete opposite. After making it snow with “Winter’s Mirage”, the new Specks collection is inspired by the circular shape of specks, turning a minor element into a powerful statement.
According to the designer, this collection represents a turning point for the homegrown silver jewellery brand. After a few experimental collections, the brand currently plans to adopt the silver sphere as an emblem of Sandbox’s design aesthetic.
Depending on the oldest rules of geometry, the unlimited potential of the spherical speck is set to become the focal point of many future collections and designs. Starting from the new collection, the brand is determined to explore the underrated range of the speck.
The collection includes a number of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, all embracing the circular shape. The designs highlight the classic appeal of a minimalist arrangement of spheres. Meanwhile, it also represents a fashion investment, which can survive the rapid turns of trends.
Following the same methods and speed with which the specks of sand travel, Al Sheikh aims to make her brand an inspiration for women to follow their own path without giving much thought to peer pressure.
