Growing up, Alasha’s mom always had a craft table set up for her in their tiny kitchen. Some of her first memories are creating macaroni art and jewellery, painting and drawing. As her love for creating jewellery grew, Alasha acquired new skills of silversmithing and working with Precious Metal Clay.
Inspiration for her work comes from an integration of many different elements. Growing up surrounded by the ocean and lush forests on Vancouver Island, nature is a large influence in many of her designs. Her travels throughout the Asian countries of Japan, China, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, as well as India have also had a subtle influence on her work as well as her love for yoga. Her work is a fusion of organic and geometric, funky and classic, earthy and ethnic, and always with the use of colour.
