Ornate jewelry is a proud cultural tradition in India and every piece in this collection hints at a deeper story. In the sprawling urban center of Old Delhi, Matr Boomie’s partner group of nearly 80 artisans delicately bends, etches, beads, and polishes jewelry from stones, glass, upcycled metal and wires, seeds, and other materials. However, these artisans are not only limited to jewelry. Many of them go on to create other products such as frames, ornaments, and hair accessories made out of ethically-sourced bone. They inherit their craftsmanship from their ancestors, who were master jewelers.
