Biography of Priyanka Khimasia
After experimenting with many forms of art while growing up in Toronto, I found my niche in jewellery making sparked by my fascination with both natural and crafted beads along with my passion for design.
While studying urban planning in university, i continued to experiment in beading techniques and decided to pursue a jewellery design and fabrication course at l’Arti Orafe in Florence, Italy. There I explored metal smiting, wax molding, jewellery design and trend forecasting. After my return to Toronto in 2010, I launched Pikay Creations and grew the business through participation in arts & crafts shows, and opening an eCommerce site in 2013.
Currently I have chosen to create an African inspired jewellery line incorporating handmade and ethically sourced beads which I recently brought from Kenya.
