About Megha

There is nothing I love more than celebrating your individuality with my sustainably handcrafted, Indian inspired, bead embroidered bespoke bridal, wedding and occasion jewellery for the perfect match to your outfit and, jewellery you can wear many different ways for many years beyond your special day!

Hello & Welcome!

I am Megha, the owner, founder, jewellery designer & maker (and countless other roles) behind Mayaani Jewellery! Named after my children, my business is incredibly close to my heart and this is why...


I have been handcrafting jewellery ever since my neighbour Jan introduced me (in one afternoon) to the fine art of bead woven

jewellery at the age of 16! I very quickly moved on from following patterns to creating my own designs, bringing to you incredibly unique, intuitively handmade signature pieces of jewellery you can only find here.

Growing up as the eldest child in a South Asian Gujarati household, with a traditional father and a less traditional (but working to be more traditional) mother, my natural born pursuit of the arts was never considered meaningful enough to become a profession. I focussed on my 'secondary career' as I was advised to. Set a 'good' example for my siblings and... Found myself becoming very much a shell of myself.

 

It was when I left home, in pursuit of this 'secondary career', I went through a series of life changing moments (including a near nervous breakdown) which led me back to myself. All of which led to me finally following my heart (starting this business originally named Tayaani Jewellery) and doing something just for me. I stopped making excuses, experienced my eureka moment (discovering my signature style of jewellery making) and started actively turning what started as a dream into a reality!

I believe there is nothing more beautiful than embracing who you are, your strengths and your flaws, and there is nothing more cruel in this world than the lengths people go to alienate you from your inner self (no matter how heart felt their motivations might be).

This is my way of celebrating your individuality, helping you to realise your styling wishes (which you may never even have known existed) and creating a way for you to be more connected to the strong, confident, empowered side of yourself. The side of yourself which shines on the biggest days of your life!

Why the emphasis on bridal & occasion jewellery you can wear again? Having chosen a very stereotypical, high street Indian art jewellery set for my own wedding day, I never fully appreciated how much I would want to be able to wear this jewellery again especially, through moments in life when I felt most disconnected with the strong, confident, beautiful and empowered woman within me (e.g. early life with a new-born, recognising and facing toxic relationships, huge career path changes, loss of self-worth, etc). For me my bridal jewellery was very much an afterthought! Can I wear it again? No! It is heavy, uncomfortable and clunky! BUT...

At Mayaani Jewellery, I am working hard to change all of that so future brides can enjoy wearing their bridal jewellery for many years to come. And not only that! I want women to realise how empowering it is to wear a piece of jewellery, which has been specifically designed for you, every day of your life, as often as you like!

I lovingly hand select all of the materials I use to create your works of wearable art, creatively designing ways for you to wear your occasion jewellery pieces as often as you like and, not just at another special occasion (because how many of those come around and can we really sit around waiting for them?). High quality upcycled elements feature in a number of my online boutique pieces and can feature in your bespoke designs. Simply supply the materials you wish to incorporate within your design and receive: 15% off for the supply of materials and a further 15% off for incorporating your materials into your bespoke design.

With the personal journey I have been on over the past five years, sustainability has become an incredibly important part of Mayaani Jewellery. I have found a number of ways to bring you luxury with sustainability:

  • Working with humble materials (beads, high quality cotton thread and high quality jewellery wire) sourced responsibly

  • Creating designs which give you multiple options for wear. Imagine a headpiece that can become a necklace or an Indian hand bracelet which becomes a separate wearable ring and bracelet! Now stop imagining because I have them for you! Less really is more

  • Incorporating high quality upcycled materials in many of my ready to ship online boutique jewellery designs

  • Repurposing every single bit of scrap material that comes out of the jewellery making process to give you a little something extra with every order over £30.00

  • Responsibly recycling the less than 5% recyclable waste (cardboard & paper) that comes out of my business

  • Packaging all of your orders using high quality eco-conscious materials

Jewellery really is a beautiful form of self-expression and should be as unique as the individual who is wearing it. It is a self-affirming, uplifting celebration of individuality, style and personality which is why I absolutely love working directly with my clients bringing them a high end experience designing jewellery pieces perfectly reflective of them. So what are you waiting for? Get in touch today for your free optional 30 minute video consultation and free no obligation quotation!

Because your jewellery should always be more than just an afterthought...

And with Mayaani Jewellery, it always is!
