We are so pleased to have Ananda Khalsa in our store and on our website. Her Jewelry is artistic, unique, finely crafted and meaningful.
For her jewelry with paintings, Ananda starts by creating an orginal painting using acrylic paints on watercolor paper. Did I say "tiny"? I should have.
Next Ananda sets one of these paintings behind hand ground glass and backs them with 22k gold or sterling silver. Much of her jewelry is accented with semiprecious stones and/or high karat gold.
The images Ananda Khalsa paints come from plants and animals rich with symbolism and folklore. While Ananda tells us what the painting means to her, she say she loves how pieces of her jewelry add new and personal meanings as they are given as a gift or worn.
And Ananda's work goes beyond her amazing talent for these tiny paintings. You will also find many other styles and designs created by this talented artist with sterling silver, gold and gemstones.
