Peach Rose Studio is the creative practice of Ashley Landon Halabuda, a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in Rochester, New York. Formerly working under the name The Knotty Owl (2011-2018), Ashley is still primarily focused on building her collection of handcrafted jewelry and one-of-a-kind bespoke jewelry pieces.
Ashley has spent the majority of her life dedicated to studying both art and design, with a belief that a well-rounded background in materials and techniques leads to more freedom and creativity in her work. She holds a Bachelor's degree of Industrial Design from the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn (2011).
Currently working in a wide range of materials, Ashley uses precious and semi-precious metals and gemstones, glass enamels, wood, and occasionally other materials in her jewelry designs. She draws inspiration from both the materials she works with, as well as different periods of art and design history (most notably the Mid-Century design movement), combining them to create her unique and occasionally quite colorful style.
