Founder and Creative Director Milly Ghumman is on a mission to revive the handcrafted aesthetic that is suffering at the hands of mass-produced, cookie cutter jewelry. Growing up in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, Milly was exposed at an early age to the intricate artistry of the local karigars (artisans), whom her mother worked with to produce timeless pieces.
A self-taught designer with a major in psychology, Milly drew upon her ability to absorb different cultures, traditions and styles to create MYO in August 2014. Her design element is functional and versatile, a delicate symmetry punctuated with precious and semi-precious stones. Each piece is handmade, unique, and tells the story of India’s true artisans in the contemporary and ever evolving present.
