ASHA—a New York City-based jewelry line designed by Ashley Dodgen-McCormick—is inspired by travel, art, and architecture. As an art history major at Georgetown, Dodgen-McCormick launched ASHA while living abroad in Florence and Paris, and visiting Venice, Prague, and Edinburgh. Her first pieces were designed at a Parisian atelier near Place Vendôme and her contemporary designs still showcase a diverse range of European influences including pre-Roman architecture in Italy and the Gothic quatrefoils of Sainte Chapelle in Paris. Dodgen-McCormick’s designs have been seen in the pages of Travel + Leisure, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, InStyle, and Elle, and adorning celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Adriana Lima, Anna Paquin, and Katie Couric. ASHA aims to bridge the gap between fine and costume jewelry, incorporating semi-precious stones, natural materials such as shell and ivory, and sterling silver dipped in 18k yellow and white gold.
