Ashka Dymel's approach to jewelry making and design is informed by her architectural training. Her goal is to achieve harmony in modular repetitions and variations on geometric forms. Primarily self taught, she avoids traditional stone setting techniques and connections. Her work is recognized by her unique method of capturing stones within metal frames creating negative space as an integral part of composition. Use of thin wires to hold the elements together is another non-traditional technique allowing for movement and structural flexibility. Combination of unique materials and methods results in a joyful piece of wearable art.
All the work is handmade in Brooklyn using sterling silver, 18k gold bimetal and semi precious stones and minerals.
