Ananda draws inspiration from natural forms, and the vibrant luminosity of natural gemstones. She strives to capture the precious quality found in ancient jewelry, while creating pieces with a modern sensibility. All of the gems used are hand picked for their unique and exceptional characteristics.
Many of her pieces contain an original painting on paper, which is set behind crystal in silver or 22k gold. An important influence on Ananda's work is the powerful symbolism behind each of the subjects she chooses to paint.
It's true. My waking (and sleeping) life revolves around jewelry. Sometimes I wonder if jewelry really is that important. The answer? A resounding yes! For thousands of years jewelry has marked events, defined status and allowed us to show our individuality. I adore creating pieces that people are inherently drawn to. Pieces that will be gifted with great thought and emotion and become heirlooms.
