Drawing 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.
Each piece is hand crafted using recycled metals in Northampton, Massachusetts by the designer and her highly skilled team of jewelers.
Set behind crystal and silver or 22k gold, Ananda hand paints each of the tiny paintings on paper that are featured in her pieces. The paintings are never printed or reproduced in any way, making each one unique.
She is influenced by the powerful symbolism behind each of the subjects she chooses to paint; themes include bluebird, autumn maple and plum blossom.
