TIMBRE is inspired by a fascination for skins and the eccentrics of skin types: Vitiligo, Albino, Freckled, and by the absence of unconventional skin types in the forefront of the Arab fashion scene.
The designs are drawn from the 3 main layers of the skin, reflecting blood cells in a vessel and skin textures through stamps and hammered surfaces. The stones used mimic the literal and natural behaviors of the 3 skin types.
The hair follicles being connected together by lines on the skin, resemble a network. A metaphor to the connectivity of all humans, as one. Through TIMBRE, we all become different parts of a single body, like infinite sand specks in a single desert.
At SANDBOX, our jewelry creations are handmade by some of Egypt's most talented silver artisans. In implementing our designs, we use 925 sterling silver, 18 kt Gold, and natural stones, bringing to life timeless and quality wearable works of art.
