Adel Chefridi was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998. Adel built his first studio in the kitchen of the Brooklyn apartment he shared with his wife and later went on to establish a studio and showroom in SOHO.
In 2008 Adel and his family moved to Woodstock, NY. , reconnecting with nature and building their present studio—just a short walk from town. Today, Adel’s work is influenced by his multicultural background and his genuine hope to find the common essence of beauty and harmony present across different cultures. His work emphasizes simplicity, wearability, and an openness to light and movement. Using genuine gemstones and precious metals, his pieces have a friendly, peaceful feel that make them wearable everyday. The natural gemstones emit light and exquisite color while blending with form and surface to create a motif that speaks to both the past and the future.
