Brooklyn, New York
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 repetititions 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 as the Bauhaus School and Russian avant garde art, are also inspirations for Ashka in making her work. In her latest collections she also incorporates mid-20th-century design aesthetics.
