A rendered picture of gold contemporary jewellery by Masha Thompson

Masha Thompson

"I am Inspired by parametric architecture as well by the mathematical perfection of nature itself. The pieces that I create and bring to life artistically attempt to encapsulate the past, the present and the future within the timeless domain of jewellery design. I also work to maintain the traditional meaning and practicality of my models and range of designs..."
