After several years of working in the field of architecture, Ashka Dymel began to design jewelry and small objects. Since 1990 she has run her own studio in Brooklyn, New York. Ashka lives with her husband and son in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

Ashka’s approach to jewelry making and design is informed by her architectural training and background. Guided by a Modernist aesthetic, Ashka achieves harmony in modular repetitions of geometric forms. A Minimalist aesthetic and preference for clean lines are major forces influencing her work, resulting in pure and graceful pieces. Modernism movements of the 1920s, such the Bauhaus School and Russian avantgarde art, are main  inspirations for Ashka in making her work. In her latest collections she also incorporates mid-20th-century design aesthetics.
