New York — Adel Chefridi was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998 where he created his studio. His work increasingly draws from his multicultural background, resulting in an attempt to reconcile past and present, nostalgia and hope. His designs emphasize 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.
A beautiful design does not add to the Gem anything that it doesn’t already have, but rather reveals the beauty it already possesses. In turn, a beautiful piece of jewelry does not add to the wearer, but unveils a truer identity, one that we immediately recognize in the mirror. Falling in love with a special piece of jewelry is no different than any other love story. The object of love a mirror, reflecting one’s own face.
