I was browsing Facebook one day (ok, maybe some stalking) and I came across this artist and designer and just loved some of the jewelry I saw. Those who know me, know it is not very difficult for me to be drawn to jewelry but I still felt these were some pretty unique and beautiful designs.
Sayeh is the founder of Sayeh Jewelry Design. All of her jewelry design is hand-made from silver, bronze and copper.
Sayeh currently lives and works in Tehran and here is her story.
How did you get started?
Sayeh’s interest in art started at a very early age when she went to High School for Visual Arts and then following this she received her bachelors degree in Arts and Architecture school in Iran and also studied sculpture and painting.
She has been making and designing her hand-made jewelry for 3 years now.
What do you currently work with in your art?
She currently works with a method called “Art Clay” (Me: Hm I had never heard of this) which is totally different than traditional methods. Her work primarily revolves around using Copper and Bronze but when she wants an element of a lighter/white color, she uses Silver more. All of her designs are her own. (Me: Amazing..)
What are some recent news about your business?
She has participated in some exhibitions focused around this “Art Clay” method and also put on some shows at home a couple times a year to display her pieces. She also recently exhibited 12 of her pieces at London Fashion Week a couple of months ago, and actually participated with ALANGOO for this with other groups as well. (Me: that is awesome, such great visibility!)
What would you like to see for your business in the future?
She would like to have exhibitions in different countries, so everyone sees her work and gives their opinion and judges her work. She would like to get more educated in this area of work and learn more about building traditional jewelry. However, she needs to first get a bigger place, like a workshop. She would also like to expand her work with Gold, but currently this is too expensive for her.
Thank you Sayeh for this interview!
