The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), represented by the “Emirati Goldsmiths” Platform, is set to take part in the International Handicrafts Trade Fair (MIDA) in Florence, Italy.

The event, which is scheduled to take place between April 24 and May 2, features a curated selection of artisans specialising in creating a variety of handicrafts.

These include accessories, jewellery, fashion items, and various other handicrafts from diverse cultures across the globe.

Notably, the SCCI’s willingness to participate in the event reflects its keenness to support entrepreneurs and promote youth-led ventures across various international exhibitions.

The delegation comprises Emirati women designers, who will showcase their latest innovative collections of gold and diamond jewellery.

Additionally, a significant number of specialised craft workshops will be conducted as part of the exhibition's programme.

These workshops, which are led by a group of esteemed senior international designers, will offer participating designers an opportunity to learn about the techniques of crafting, designing, and manufacturing gold and jewellery.

They will delve into a range of design-related threads, such as the artistic installations of stones (stone-stacking/formation) using the most advanced global techniques, as well as welding, crafting, metalworking, and the incorporation of metals to provide more innovative designs.

Moreover, the SCCI’s delegation will have the chance to visit the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, in addition to other various workshops that focus on traditional perfume and fragrance industry and jewellery manufacturing.

Director of the Executive Office of the SCCI’s Chairman and in charge of the Emirati Goldsmiths Platform, Mona Sultan Al Suwaidi, affirmed that the SCCI is keen on enhancing the platform’s engagement in both local and international key relevant events.

The aim is to enhance the Emirati designers’ expertise, cultivate their talents, facilitate product promotion, exhibit their artistic innovations, particularly in gold and jewellery designs, and acquaint them with the local and global markets’ demands and requirements. It also seeks to foster increased communication and collaboration with major brands operating in this field.

Al Suwaidi expected that the Emirati Goldsmiths Platform’s participation in the International Handicraft Exhibition in Florence will be highly successful; given the accumulated expertise the UAE's female designers have gained in recent years, in addition to the high quality and craftsmanship of the jewellery and gold artefacts they curate.

These artefacts include ornaments, diamond and gold jewellery, pearls, and various other precious metals and gemstones epitomising the Emirati designers’ unique hand works, which bear a heritage-inspired imprint and underscore the legacy craftsmanship passed down from their ancestors.
