Ashka Dymel

Ashka Dymel's approach to jewelry making is informed by her architectural training and inspired by Modernist movements such the Bauhaus School, Russian Avant-Garde art and mid-20th-century design. "My goal is to achieve harmony in modular repetitions and variations on geometric forms," she says.

Primarily self-taught, Dymel avoids traditional stone setting techniques and connections in her Brooklyn, New York, studio. Each piece is handmade using sterling silver, 18K gold bimetal and semi-precious stones and minerals.
