Ashdel is a collection of modern textile jewelry created from repurposed vintage sewing notions (fabric trims, threads, and fasteners) and glass beads. Designed and handmade by Ashley Delose in Austin, TX.
Vintage and upcycled materials are at the heart of her design process and inspire limited collections. Her work is experimental yet grounded in traditional techniques like sewing, collage, Japanese braiding (kumihimo), beading, and embroidery.
Ashley grew up in Florida and lived in New York before moving to Texas. After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in Visual Art and Theater Production (Costume Design) she began experimenting with textiles, now the foundation of her work.
