Each piece is handcrafted with a variety of metals including sterling silver, copper and gold. The connectivity of earth and space continues to be a prominent theme within her work. The “Star” series and “Moon” series, like her “Constellation” design, are hand-pierced to create space within the pieces and thus allow light to pervade them.
Like the idea of ephemeral sky and depth of space above the earth, Asia believes there is great beauty in what is not seen or not obviously seen. Different textures, stones, and shapes connect her love of the elements and convey different moods and themes. Many pieces are engraved with words that have meaning and purpose, returning to that first inspiring love of all of the elements, which have now been combined into unique and beautiful jewelry.
Her cuffs, rings and pendants all reflect her fascination with both the natural and celestial worlds. Each piece is handcrafted while striving to embody the true essence of her artistic vision. Her work is carried in retail stores who feature innovative jewelry design, and she regularly travels with her designs participating in trunk shows in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York City, where she resides.
