Be Stylish

Be Stylish is a limited edition brooch by Simone LeAmon hand made from recycled aluminium cans featuring Arabic and English text.

Be Stylish marks Simone LeAmon’s time in Saudi Arabia in January 2014. Delivering the workshop The Designer as Storyteller in the Faculty of Arts and Design at Princess Nora University, Riyadh, Simone was moved by the experience of sharing stories and discussing design ideas with her PNU colleagues.

Wishing to make a gift for her PNU colleagues on her return to Australia, Simone collaborated with jeweller Blanche Tilden to produce the Be Stylish brooches from aluminium soft drink cans she collected while in Riyadh.

One to ten of the Be Stylish brooches are now with the academics who will lead the new Product Design program at PNU – soon to be the first program of its kind for women in Saudi Arabia.
