Ashka Dymel

"My background is in structure, geometry, modular designs, and architecture. Jewelry-making provides me with instant gratification and a sense of creative freedom."

After many years of working monochromatically, Ashka Dymel began using color.

She designs these new pieces as if she is a painter creating impressionistic compositions.

Using translucent semi-precious gems, Dymel creates miniature paintings, with each gemstone bead like a drop of luminous paint held in place by a threaded silver wire.
