Fay Andrada applies the functional principles of graphic design and her own reductionist aesthetic to making jewelry. The pieces are made primarily of alloys (brass, silver, and bronze) that are shaped into distinctive forms using hammers, files, and flame. While committed to creating iconic shapes, she embraces the imperfection of the human hand and cedes subtle textures to the metal medium. The intent is a style that is smart and singular with a minimalist motif that does not sacrifice imagination or beauty. Fay's studio is currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
