Jewelry and accessory design at Amman Design Week takes inspiration from tradition, nature, and everything in between. The designers take those and combine them with contemporary disciplines to create unique pieces, each with a story to tell.

Founded in 2012, Ola Medanat Jewelry debuted Medanat’s first pieces, which represented a bridge between her background in architecture and her vision for modern day jewelry. She aims to create items with clean lines, evident texture and a bit of an edge.
