Ammal Labib is an Egyptian jeweller living in Barcelona since 2005. She studied for two years at Alchimia, years that were very important for her, she asserts, as she learned to open her mind to using different materials and forms, and mixing materials which she introduced into her jewellery.
Ammal’s pieces are commonly described as having a ‘strong character’; this is due to the fact that she combines contemporary and organic forms with an Egyptian flavour. Many of her pieces are one-of-a-kind, such as the rings and necklaces she makes with unique stones from the Black Desert in Egypt. The desert is full of these stones, which are a mixture of many different components including iron.
