Husam El Odeh is a jewellery designer and artist living and working in London. German-born El Odeh studied fine art at the Hochschule der Kuenste in Berlin and continued to work as an artist in Germany’s capital, before relocating to London in 1999, where he began to make jewellery.
El Odeh’s work creates a balance between tactile and visual qualities, the combining of opposites is also a key element to pieces which locate the immediacy of the body as an integral part of their design. In February 2005, prior to his Summer graduation from Middlesex University, El Odeh was chosen by Fashion East to stage a show during London Fashion Week; following graduation he was awarded sponsorship by the British Fashion Council’s New Generation scheme and has since received sponsorship a further three times. El Odeh has also won the 2008 international ‘So Fresh Award’ for cutting edge accessory design.
El Odeh has worked with fashion designers including Siv Stoldal, Ann-Sofie Back and Mihara Yasuhiro. Since 2005 El Odeh has worked with Marios Schwab on varied projects and also creates jewellery for each of his collections. He has also been involved in various projects with Topman, Topshop, and Kickers, El Odeh's work has featured in magazines including Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed and Confused, and Another Magazine. El Odeh’s jewellery and accessories are internationally available at Colette, B Store, Opening Ceremony, Shine, Joyce, Concento and Idea.
