Hypatia of Alexandria

Inspired by the great philosopher and astronomer details of her traumatic and powerful story are infused into each piece. Hypatia was a beloved teacher whose social ranking was on par with Alexandria’s most important men. The collection and use of gemstones are inspired by her intrigue of the night sky, astronomical works, and devices that she recreated to analyze the distances of stars and planets. The textures of the pieces are to evoke her dramatic final moments.

The collection is a reminder of her works and her philosophical teaching to powerfully overcome outward constraints to achieve your goals.
