So this blog introduces you to another special friend of mine, Sherin Boulos of Alexandria, Egypt. She lives with her parents in the city, works at Fairhaven School and Vocational centre (a Micah68 project) as the very creative Arts and Crafts teacher, supports local Christian projects in the city via her work with Caritas, is an Coptic Orthodox Christian, and a wonderful young woman.It is great to have got to know her and her family.
As well as all this, she is the creative force behind Shasso Accessories (check out Shasso Accessories on Facebook), making handmade jewellery and other gift items from her home. Originally taught by her father, a silversmith, she has developed an individual and modern look with a Middle eastern/North African twist. She is looking to get her products out to more friends across Egypt, and via Micah68, around the world! Postage is difficult from Egypt, but every time I travel to Alexandria I come back with a selection of her items, which I buy to support her expanding business. Please do encourage her on the Facebook page, look at her items – and feel free to contact me to see what Shasso Accessories I’ve got on sale!
