Talents of Arabia: May Jewelry

When talent, hard work and love are put into creating pieces of elegance we appreciate.  Cue May Al Qassar, 26, founder of Kuwait based May Jewelry.

After having obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, May moved back to Kuwait and started designing jewelry long before launching her business in 2010. Jewelry design is innate to May she says “it makes me happy and I have always been very pedantic while choosing stones, their size and of course the overall design of the piece.”

What started as private commissions supported by family and friends has grown into a successful business with a strong GCC customer base all coveting May’s designs.  However, as the business grows May insists that it is still a “one woman show” because “I design jewelry that is personal to me and fall in love with every piece I create.”

Personal shines through everything May does from her designs to the packaging. You know she cares about it all “I try my best to use recycled materials for my packaging, and I use any excess gold I have left for my next design.”

Not only does May do things personally she does them perfectly too, with her goldsmith May says that “we have done, redone and redesigned many pieces until we perfected each and everyone.” 

So essentially, from May Jewelry you get a piece of perfect simplicity.
