About the Artist
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 sterling silver or 22k gold. An important influence in Ananda's work is the powerful symbolism behind each of the subjects she chooses to paint. Each of Ananda’s pieces is handcrafted in her studio in Northampton, Massachusetts by Ananda and her highly skilled team of jewelers.
