This is my first Designer Spotlight and I am beyond excited to introduce you all to one of my favorite jewelry designer duos – Melange Couture! This unique line was started by twins Nadia and Saadia out of NYC who drew inspiration from their childhood and background. The two have created extremely unusual and beautiful pieces that will definitely enhance any outfit.

How/Why did you start designing jewelry? Is this something you have always wanted to do?

My twin Nadia grew up in pakistan, where beading embroidery and jewelry is a big part of every day. Recently we started a company that sources beading and embroidery work from India for designers in the U.S. We were inspired by the skill level of the artisans. Using their skill set we were able to create a jewelry line which is almost like transferable beading. You can take it from one outfit to another.

I love that all the jewelry is handmade in India. What is it made from?

Its made exactly how you would bead a fabric. In this case fabric is cut out hence creating a very drappy effect.

Where do you get your inspiration?

People in NYC. The city is full of people from all over the world. Everyone brings something different!
