Tunisia is a storied land that pulses with the energy of many cultures. This was Adel Chefridi's childhood playground. When Adel came to New York City in 1998 he felt right at home. Adel taught himself the craft of jewelry-making before studying at both GIA and the Studio Jewelers School to fine-tune his skills in metalsmithing. His first studio was located in the kitchen of a walk-up in Brooklyn before it was moved to SoHo. Adel built a following by showcasing his work at "maker markets" and in 2008 expanded the business to partner with retailers. He and his wife moved the jewelry studio to Woodstock, then later to Kingston, and finally to Rhinebeck, where together they maintain the showroom and studio today.
