Sasha and Max Studio is based in Sydney, Australia. Established 2009.
An interior architect/designer as my day job, my other design passion is to create on a much more miniature scale, making unique jewellery from artisan glass, ceramic components, fabrics, sterling silver, copper, and antique brass. I starting making jewellery in my teens as a work experience job, but then chose the more "sensible" path of architecture as a career, always wanting to revisit jewellery design. Many years on, Sasha+ Max Studio was born, named after my fur-children.
Sasha+Max Studio jewellery incorporates handmade lampwork glass beads, handmade ceramics and pewter, and Japanese fabrics into casual,sometimes cheeky and always unique pieces.
The style is generally simple, using colour or patterns to make a design statement. I have a love for Japanese prints, birds, nature, chain and wooden beads so they are recurring elements in my pieces.
I do not not mass produce - that is not what it is about - I want you to have a special, handmade, individual piece to treasure that you can't buy at a store and that your friends will envy. All items are made by me in my studio in Liyfield, Sydney - all pieces genuinely and truly hand made.www.facebook.com/sashaandmax.
