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 trained in Upstate New York, Ayesha’s roots are steeped in tradition while her aesthetic is unmistakably contemporary. Her pieces are fluid, yet clearly defined. Bohemian yet stylish. Inspired by the smooth curves and furrows that running water molds through rough earth and stone. By harnessing these opposing forces, Ayesha creates a range of jewelry that is perfectly attuned to the mood and preferences of each individual.

Ayesha's Story

Ayesha's Story

Ayesha Mayadas was born in Calcutta, India and moved to Rochester, NY at age 15. After a thirteen-year career as a textile engineer, she gave in to her passion for metals and dedicated herself to the craft full-time. In 1997, she joined the Rochester Institute of Technology to pursue a Masters in Metal Arts.  After an apprenticeship with one of the leading artists in the genre, she established her own studio in 2000.

Although initially interested in traditional silversmithing, she soon discovered the techniques of hammering and forming and fell in love with the ability to create sculptural and abstract vessels from copper, silver and steel. Movement and fluidity were the 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. Hammering continues to be her favorite technique, with the hammer her favorite tool at her bench.

Her work is driven by the interplay of line, form, weight and balance, creating stunning jewelry that resonates with the human form.
