Welcome to my store! My name is Meenoo and I design and make all the jewelry you see in my store. As an Indian-American, I have been always surrounded by amazing jewelry my whole life, worn for special occasions as well as everyday. I believe jewelry should be worn everyday, it will improve your mood, I promise!

I make beautiful and imaginative jewelry inspired by the fabulous bazaars and markets of India. I take Indian themes and design and simplify them for the modern woman to create jewelry you can wear every day.

I make jewelry for women who are curious, romantic, and have a passion for other cultures, beauty, history, mythology, and art, women who love to wear jewelry every day, not just for special occasions.

I am inspired by color, nature, history, literature, and of course the shiny and sparkly. I love using vintage Indian bits and pieces of neglected components and findings and combining them with Lucite, glass, crystals, and gemstones to create something new. I take great care and time in choosing shapes, patterns, and colors that remind me in some way of India and South Asia and its endless source of inspiration.

If you want to feature Minou Bazaar's creations in your shop, please contact me.

I believe in upcycling and recycling and practice that in my packaging materials, as well as my jewelry. All packages come in a hand-stamped gift box with a pretty ribbon and a gift tag. They are gift-ready!

Glowing praise from one of my customers: "You are amazing...I am so pleased to have my new earrings! How beautifully you've designed them & I appreciate their light weight. They remind me of some of the Mughal treasures I've seen in museum collections."

Most of my jewelry is limited edition or one of a kind (OOAK), simply because I like to try new things. If you are interested in a design that I have sold, please contact me as I may be able to recreate something similar. I also love custom and Indian-inspired bridal or commitment ceremony orders. Let me know if we can create something together!

I love to dream about what women wore in other times and other places. When I'm not making jewelry or at my day job, I am reading, gardening, or daydreaming. I live in the DC metro area with my husband and cats. I am also a huge bookworm--if you are on Goodreads, check out my library: it's under Meenoo.
