About

Baharak Omidfar has a Master's degree in art research and Bachelor's degree in the handicrafts with a specialisation in jewellery fields .She teaches jewellery making and designing at university and personal studio. She is Juror, curator, lecturer, organiser, participant and winner in exhibitions, galleries, design weeks, events, national and international festivals related to jewellery.

She is one of the pioneers of the aesthetical-conceptual approach to contemporary jewellery design in Iran. The approach, she insists upon maintaining up to this date.

Her works and collections, often focus on the role of women in Iranian mythology and culture. To that end, she explores Iranian traditions, myths, tales, and ceremonies, where female protagonists have an active and essential presence; such as Esfandegan (the celebration of woman and earth), the bride of the aqueduct, and women of Shahnameh (Book of Kings).
