Artist and designer Sasha Samuels creates in extremely diverse cultures; Silicon Valley and Italy (her Tuscan studio was for a time an abandoned 14th century Romanesque church). Samuels relocated part-time to the Bay Area expressly to cross pollinate with pioneering scientists in the fields of psychology and trauma recovery, as well as art scholars. Receiving her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, she spent her senior year abroad as a member of its European Honors Program in Rome, Italy. This lead to a lifelong multi-disciplinary exploration, some with Italian masters, in painting, Florentine stone mosaic, goldsmithing, ceramics, sculpture, blacksmithing and enamel as well as numerous exhibitions, publications and awards, including an international award/feature at a museum in Salerno, Italy.

Celebrating our Front Line Heroes  

18k gold Peace Cross, set with yellow sapphire eye of protection. Coin pearl pendants in 14k gold with gemstones.

“In spring of 2020 when the pandemic hit, I was moved to do something special to honor our front line workers, asking my clients to nominate an individual who had gone above and beyond serving  in their community. To celebrate that hero, I created a Peace Cross necklace in 18k gold with a yellow sapphire symbolizing a watchful eye of protection to gift to the winning nominee. The response was so overwhelming I created an additional four pendants with coin pearls and gemstones for the runners-up”.
