After studying graphic design at Pratt Institute, Ashley soon realized her passion for jewelry. "My graphic design background has influenced my aesthetic as a jeweler. I have always enjoyed working and creating with my hands over the computer. There is something about lighting a torch and heating metal that is magical to me." Ashley began silversmithing at the Jewelry Arts Institute in New York, NY to learn the formal technique of Roman and Greek jewelry making. While staying true to traditional craftsmanship she aims to make pieces that are simple, chic, and timeless.
