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 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.
A bright rose cut pink sapphire floats freely beside a two solid 22k gold disk charms. Bezel set in 22k gold backed with sterling silver and is finished on a 14k gold chain. Pendant .75 inch. Matte finish.
