Petra Bishai

Petra Bishai’s work is inspired by urban life. A resident of London, she considers the transitions that occur in her cultural environment and translates her observations into jewelry made with everyday objects. Her collections explore the paradox of belonging versus alienation and how we adapt to and interact with our surroundings. The “Cardinal Points” collection investigates the perceived cultural differences between north and south London, using the imagery of the River Thames, which acts as both the heart of the city and its line of separation.
