Azra Hussain

Portfolio Categories: Jewelry.

Azra is a distinctive jewelry artist. She is an artist and former educator mother of three. She works from her studio in Connecticut. She believes that jewelry is an expression and an extension of fine arts. Her pieces are simple but elegant and are unique and are one of a kind. No two of her necklaces look the same. She enjoys infusing drama and colour into her works. Her idea of color play is out of the ordinary, making her pieces both exquisite and affordable at the same time. Each of her works requires intricate sculpting with hours of patience and gentle handiwork. She likes working with glass beads and semi-precious stones. She likes the transparency and smooth texture of the glass beads. The stone brings contrast to the glass beads with distinct erratic edges and brilliant but unpredictable colors. She brings the medley of shimmering materials together in coils and strands of silver, gold, and copper wire. Her jewelry pieces are not just an adornment of decoration but a projection of artwork.

She has also shown work at the Guilford Art Gallery and New Britain Art Museum. Her work has also been shown in the Converge Art Gallery in Williamsport, PA.
