about jewelry order + purchase contact special edition

A performance artist, Larisa Gassel's interest turned to jewelry after being unsatisfied with only finding relatively uninspired pieces available locally. After a brief period of training under local artisans and sculptors Larisa began producing jewelry for herself inspired by her frequent trips to Europe and the Middle East.

Friends and co-workers were very interested in Larisa's work which incorporates exotic styles with modern practicality. Their enthusiasm for her jewelry encouraged Larisa to develop Purple Dream Arts where she offers her creations to you.

Quote from the artist: "My designs incorporate both modern and contemporary elements. Hand made jewelry crafted in the natural stones combined with sterling silver and silver plated metals. Shape and color compliment each other to create designs which are unique with a contemporary twist."

All pieces are handcrafted and most are one-of-a-kind.
