Ananda Khalsa

I came across Ananda Khalsa's collection a few years ago and ever since I have followed her success and anxiously awaited her new designs. She also happens to be from Rhode Island ( shout out!) so I have an extra special place for her in my heart.

Ananda draws inspiration from Asian art, natural forms, and the cool sleekness of metal. Each of her pieces contains an original painting on paper, which is set behind hand ground glass in fine and sterling silver. Another important influence in Ananda's work is the powerful symbolism behind each of the subjects she chooses to paint. I love the Bluebird and Dragonfly collections; those rings are just so fabulous!

Head on over here...
