Sara Shakeel, who was once a dentist, is now an award-winning crystal and visual artist. Sara adds a little extra sparkle to the world with her dazzling designs. She is well known on Instagram for her glitter stretch mark art and images, but in the current global situation she has turned her attention to adding some beauty to the hardship the world is facing right now. These images highlight health care workers and their courage, giving a shine to the nurses and doctors who are risking everything to continue to help people stay safe, and treat patients. The glittery crystallization of the washing of hands brings light to shine on those who are doing everything they can – even if it’s simply by washing their hands – to keep the global community healthy and safe—and a little bit more shimmery!
