Adel Chefridi was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998, where he founded his Studio, his work is increasingly drawing from his multicultural background, resulting in an attempt to reconcile past and present, nostalgia and hope. his Designs emphasizes simplicity, wearability, durability, and openness to light and movement. using natural gemstones, his pieces have a friendly and peaceful feel that make them wearable everyday.
Adel creates his pieces using natural gem stones, and solid precious metals, models are make out of wax or resin, either according to exact measurements or completely free form allowing spontaneous and at times chaotic shapes. a lot of the pieces however, are made directly by metal forming. there is almost always a gemstone or multiple stones in the design, and that involves stone setting techniques ranging from bead work to microsetting.
