The hub, which will be named Al Qubaisi Sturiale Projects, is expected to commence operations in April of 2012, according to Paolo Sturial

The Al Qubaisi Sturiale Projects hub is also expected to be the launch-pad for a unique jewelry concept dubbed ‘Sculptures to Wear’, in December of 2012. “This will be an innovative form of jewelry that utilizes both of our respective unique talents,” said Sturiale.
“There have been lengthy discussions as to how the talents of Azza Al-Qubaisi
