The vibrant luminosity of natural gemstones is the core of Ananda's inspiration. She captures the precious quality found in ancient jewelry and remains to create pieces with a modern sensibility. All of the gems used in her work are hand picked due to their unique and exceptional characteristics.
Many of her pieces begin as an original painting on paper and then are transformed into jewelry which is set behind crystal in silver or 22k gold. The powerful symbolism behind each of the subjects she chooses to paint is an important influence of Ananda's work.
Each of Ananda’s pieces is handcrafted in her studio in Northampton, Massachusetts by Ananda and her highly skilled team of jewelers.
"We hand make each piece in our sun filled studio in an old mill building in Northampton, Massachusetts."
Each luminous gemstone is handpicked for its exceptional qualities, and recycled metals are used to create the pieces. Ananda hand paints each of the tiny paintings, and pairs them with the loveliest of gems.
