Prize(s)3rd Place in Accessory / Jewelry
Entry Description

My design is inspired by the Dome of Soltaniyeh, located in Iran, which is the third largest dome in the world and has been registered in UNESCO World Heritage list.
The base of building plan is designed for making the sun clock specially for religious affairs to recognize the exact time of the days and nights by the sunshine and lights of stars enter from the dome hole or windows.
The turquoises applied in the design indicate the art of tile-work on the outer shell of the dome and the yellow citrine gemstone symbolizes Sun and brightness of the days versus Moon and darkness of the nights.
