KISS MY RING
H O M E
The Maroc Collection is my homage to
Morocco — for the desert dwelling Tuaregs,
the nomadic Berbers — and to all the people who generously share their enchanting land with a curious wonderer, such as myself.
Morocco, as I return back to you, I am drawn
ever more into your mysterious terrain, and
with each journey, you seep deeper into my
soul, thus creating the essence for this

Henna Hand Pendant
Peace and Protection are the symbols of the "hand" while the delicate flourishes atop this pendant emulate the custom of Henna (Mehndi, in Arabic) application to the skin. This senna-colored paste is seen on women across the Middle East and throughout North Africa.
Dar Salaam Padlock Pendant
"Dar Salaam" means "house of peace" in Arabic. Thus, this piece shows the wearer's intention of peace. The engraved eye is also a symbolic protective motif.
Dar Salaam Padlock Earrings
Tiny padlock earrings, engraved with an eye motif, to protect the wearer
The clustered pod-like nodules on this ring are inspired by the tamarisk tree (also known as a salt cedar) that grows throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Northern Africa. Accustomed to harsh landscapes with little rain, this tree blooms with masses of pinkish feathery blossoms before producing thousands of round seed pods.
The word "baraka" is from the Sufi tradition, meaning "breath of life" or "blessing." This ring is designed to invoke that very intention! Fabulous also as a stacking ring.
Sterling Silver • Size 7½
This oval bangle is shaped for the comfort of one's wrist. Worn alone, or ideal to add to your existing collection!
This unisex cuff, engraved with primitive geometric designs, is inspired by textiles created and used by the Berber inhabitants of the Moroccan Anti-Atlas Mountains.
This unisex cuff is engraved with stylized date palm fronds. These palms grow profusely throughout Morocco, especially in the Draa Valley, where the Draa River, the longest in Morocco, flows from the high Atlas Mountain.
