Alexandra Hakim

Alexandra Hakim is a renowned jewellery designer with a strong commitment to zero-waste design and sustainability. Her delicate pieces are inspired by a wide range of sources, including Lebanon’s industrial coastline, Mediterranean tomato stems, and Mexican food markets. Hakim’s jewellery is handmade, using traditional techniques combined with innovative technical skills. She prioritizes the use of recycled or found materials that would otherwise be wasted, emphasizing sustainability in her practice.

Hakim received her training from Central St Martin’s and the Rhode Island School of Design, where she honed her artisan craft and creative practice. She launched her eponymous jewellery line in 2016 in Beirut, where it gained instant acclaim, quickly establishing Hakim in the male-dominated field of metalwork. Her jewellery has been featured in top-tier publications such as Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire, and has been worn by celebrities such as Rihanna.

With BEIT, Alexandra Hakim has expanded her expertise into product design, creating a series of artisan ashtrays that are wonderfully sculptural. This collaboration demonstrates Hakim’s ability to reimagine everyday objects by elevating their decorative potential without sacrificing functionality. The ashtrays are a stunning addition to any interior and are sure to spark conversation. She has also produced a series of cocktail accessories, such as the ‘Citrus’ charms and the ‘Chili’ cocktail pin.
