Local Chicago jewelry line Mera Naam is one of our favorites. Designed by April Krieger, her collection of vintage beads and semiprecious stones makes her Indian-inspired jewelry line truly unique. April studied fashion and accessory design at The Art Institute of Chicago and Parsons School of Design in New York. A native of Chicago, she decided to remain here and started Mera Naam in 2003. Always, inspired by Indian culture, Mera Naam means “my name” in Hindi. April draws draw from their colors and the funky style of Bollywood cinema from the 60’s and 70’s.
Mera Naam is comprised of a mix of semi-precious stones, vintage beads and pendants. We particularly love her earrings. She offers custom design and bridal jewelry if you contact her through her website
