May Rishani was a jewelry designer for over fifteen years before turning to creating iron sculptures and metal mobiles. In jewelry, she was inspired by the antique and wanted to create pieces that reflected the Eastern tradition. May Rishani has tried to strike a balance between commerce and art in creating Sabika, her jewelry company. But the move to large format was a revelation. She is also inspired by movement, by dance; for May Rishani, artistic creation is essentially a desire to mirror the beauty and culture that surrounds us.
