Marked by a minimalist elegance and playful sophistication, Priyadarshini Himatsingka's jewelry lines range from everyday casual to contemporary formal. While Priyadarshini's work is redolent of old-fashioned charm, it is also unmistakably modern. With pieces typically light in weight, almost ethereal in quality, her creations strike one as exquisitely crafted poetry for the body. Each piece is handmade, and she finds particular satisfaction in the wonderfully inevitable consequent variations. Priyadarshini works primarily in silver and high-karat gold, and often combines the two metals. She also offers a collection featuring rosecut diamonds - smoky stones custom cut for her studio.
Priyadarshini was born in India in 1975. Raised in a family of textile designers, she spent her childhood steeped in the most current artistic trends. Priyadarshini did her foundation work at Parsons, and earned degrees from New York University in Photography and Philosophy, and from the Rhode Island School of Design in Jewelry and Light Metals. She established her studio in Providence in 2002, where she lives with her husband. Her collections can be found at stores and galleries across North America and now at Lobo Luxe, in Australia.
