These unusual jewelry designs by Hana Karim are purposefully heavy pieces that bring jewelry design back to its roots, when these kinds of accessories were cherished and worn close to the body, rather than just frivolous embellishments. In order to express this, Karim's designs are like artful sculptures that may seem awkward, but they are successful at making the wearer conscious of what's on their bodies.

Karim's jewelry designs include everything from rings to necklaces, as well as other pieces that are not quite conventional, such as a piece that perches on the shoulder blade. The presence of these jewelry pieces brings a greater appreciation for them, since you're more likely to be aware of how they feel all the time.
