I dropped my entry off at the local FedEx office two days shy of the deadline for the Dubai Jewellery Design Competition. This was a competition I decided to enter on the spot, when I discovered it on Google. I have always envisioned Dubai as a spectacular “larger than life” city, and the challenge was to create a trio of jewelry designs on a par with that vision.
I named my trio of designs “FLIGHT”, and here is their story inspired by the flight of a bird…
Dreaming of Flight, I watched the bird make lazy circles above me on a warm summer afternoon. Its exquisite shape was suspended in air by only its own perfectly balanced motion. The delicate wings moved up and down, powering through the expanse of the sky, the winds, and the heavens to a place where all is bound only by the universal laws of Flight.
Following the example of the bird, I take a mental journey above the everyday world, fashioning strands of gold and glimmering gemstones into my own personal Flight.
Good news, as I checked online this morning, I saw my designs were delivered halfway around the world. Thank you, FedEx!
