About Ayesha Mayadas

About the Artist

About the Artist

Metalsmith & artisan Ayesha Mayadas brings a fresh perspective to fine jewelry with unique designs born from her personal exploration of contrasts. Born in Calcutta, India and lived in Upstate New York.  An artist at heart, yet trained as an engineer.  Roots steeped in tradition, yet her aesthetic is unmistakably contemporary.  Her pieces are fluid, yet clearly defined. Bohemian yet stylish.  

Each piece of jewelry features organic lines and fluid forms and is designed to perfectly complement the curves and silhouette of the female form, Ayesha Mayadas Jewelry is conceived and created with the wearer in mind. It is ageless jewelry that becomes a part of you – jewelry that endures through time. 


Our Process

Our Process

Breath-takingly beautiful. Expertly crafted.

Ayesha crafts her jewelry using gold, silver, copper and gemstones. She pays fastidious attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship. Ayesha personally designs and crafts each, one-of-a-kind piece. Studio assistants work alongside her to create production, and limited edition pieces.

Initially interested in traditional silversmithing, she learned techniques of hammering and forming and fell in love with the ability to create sculptural and abstract vessels from copper, silver and steel. She was inspired by the smooth curves and furrows that water molds through earth and stone.  Movement and fluidity were key elements of these sculptures and remain visible in her work today. In 2004, she turned to making jewelry, using some of the same techniques she honed in crafting vessels. The hammer remains her favorite tool in the studio.


Ayesha's Story

Ayesha's Story

Ayesha Mayadas was born in Calcutta, India and moved to Rochester, NY at age 15. Always an artist at heart, she dabbled with jewelry in her kitchen while following a “practical” career in Textile Engineering.   That profession took her frequently to Zurich, Switzerland where she spent hours roaming the streets of the old city peering into the small retail fronts of jewelry ateliers.  After thirteen years as a Textile Engineer, she decided to begin anew to make the dream of an atelier a reality.  She joined the Rochester Institute of Technology to pursue a Masters in Metal Arts.  In 2000, she established her studio in Rochester.  In 2007, it was time to take the final leap toward creating an art jewelry gallery as an extension of her studio.   This is how the current location in Englewood NJ came to be.
