Queen of the Nile dusted in dream blush, dancing atop the curve of an art deco moon, howling her strength and beauty, a bad ass goddess- This is how I would describe the woman that dares to wear Melody Ehsani’s jewelry. Persian American living in L.A., Ehsani emboldens us all to be our truest selves the way we were designed to be.

A word from the artist, Izziyana Suhaimi: I am Endlessly curious. My work primarily involves the use of embroidery. I am interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. My work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths. Preferring to work with craft-based techniques, I am attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centered age of today. My works have been exhibited in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan.
