Oman Woman of the Year 2020
Nadia al Shamsi, founder and designer of Mazayen Jewellery, was always an artistic child – even at a young age she would make things instead of playing. Most of her spare time is spent crafting things, and she currently, makes jewelry, paints, designs furniture and creates wall motifs.
After earning her BS in Management, in 2009 she started making jewelry with beads and gemstones, using Oman’s heritage and culture to influence her designs, and decided to take her hobby to the next level. She began selling her jewellery from her home studio after attending different courses on jewellry design and silversmithing. Nadia earned a Diploma in Creative Jewellery from London.
Nadia has taken her creations to different exhibitions, including the 2015 edition of the International London Jewellery Exhibition, Wonders of East in UAE, and Handmade in Oman Exhibition. Her company was selected to feature in the Italian movie ‘Il Carnevale della vita’ wherein the lead actress wore Mazayen jewellery in two scenes. Mazayen jewellery has also featured at the Catwalk SS20 at International Jewellery London show September 2019 and is currently displayed in luxurious boutiques across Oman, Kuwait, London, Paris, and Melbourne.
