“This is a story of Alicia O’Dell, a peek into the various facets of her personality, and her day to day life. She calls herself a nomad, and on a typical day, she is a loner, trying to understand her experiences, and turning them into jewelry designs in her studio. But once her products are ready, she is ready to stage as the Founder of AEO Designs, her self-starter jewelry brand. While she is absolutely focused in her studio, at home (which is another artistic expression of Alicia’s life), she is more of a thinker, and a cheerful, radiant personality to meet and hang around with. This is a synopsis of Alicia’s life, in 10 picture shots…”
December 4, 2015, SOMERVILLE – Alicia O’Dell, Founder of AEO designs, a US based, metal jewelry brand, is working in an Artists Asylum in Somerville, handcrafting new pieces of jewelry for the busy holiday season. Taking inspiration from her personal travel experiences, which eventually became the reason for her to start the brand, she said, “I was born with nomadic heart. I’ve lived many places and constantly seek opportunities to travel, to explore. I am grateful for my journey, to connect profoundly with this strange yet familiar world. I process these experiences through my art, to find peace with the unanswered questions – a balance with the oppositions”. Photograph by Shraddha Gupta.
