About Shaya Durbin
A lush experience of color and form, my jewelry accentuates the beauty of carefully selected gems with subtle designs, creating the organic aesthetic so characteristic of my work. Balancing strong, sculptural forms with the femininity of vibrant gems, each piece is carefully considered with meticulous attention to detail, showing a passion for design that is instantly recognizable. I create jewelry that is quietly complex, readily combining myriad metalsmithing techniques while designing for subtlety. Rooted in the history and craft of jewelry making, I combine traditional techniques of stone setting and fabrication with the sculptural forms of one-of-a-kind metal casting. I work exclusively with recycled precious metals.
