nternationally acclaimed jewelry designer Masha Archer was born Maria Muchin in Kiev, Ukraine. Masha’s parents, Sophia and Mykola Muchin, were artists and teachers of painting and sculpture at the Kiev and Kharkov Art institutes. Masha spent the post-war years with her family in Europe until they immigrated to the United States in 1949. Masha studied painting and graphic design at the prestigious Pratt Institute in New York until she relocated to Mexico City to work as a restorer and exhibitor at the Museo Nacional de Mexico.
Masha’s work reflects her philosophy that all forms of art are a fusion of cultural influences and life experiences. The dramatic exoticism of her jewelry demonstrates her ability to infuse her work with her own rich heritage and background. As Masha states, anything that she has seen and loved is still within her, and has subsequently influenced her designs. Masha’s work elegantly walks the line between art and jewelry, and her signature look has left an indelible impression on the art world. Named “Art-to-Wear Jewelry Designer, USA” by the New York Fashion Group, Masha Archer has been changing the way we see jewelry, fashion and design for nearly four decades.
