Born in Calcutta, India, Priyadarshini Himatsingka was introduced at an early age to the world of design and style while growing up in her family of textile designers. An urban at heart, she completed her foundation work at Parsons in New York City and then went on to earn degrees in Photography and Philosophy at NYU. Eventually she enrolled in the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied Jewelry and Metals for the first time.
It was there in Providence, Rhode Island that Priyadarshini established her studio in 2002, out of which she continues to work primarily in silver and high karat gold, often combining the two metals. her extensive collection is stylishly simple and features quaint details that weave together old-fashioned elegance with modern minimalism. Each piece is handmade with a wabi-sabi influence into a style that is distinctly her own. Her lightweight pieces are almost ethereal in quality and are exquisitely crafted poetry for the body.
Priyadarshini loves to spend time traveling with her two young children and is an enthusiastic cook. She likes good manners, appreciates well-made things and loves a crisp glass of wine.
