Bidri x MCM

Bidri x MCM header. Sterling silver handcrafted jewelry handmade in India by Lai and Craft Stories

Our 'Bidri X MCM' collection has been inspired by the aesthetics of Mid Century Modern (MCM) and skillfully handcrafted using the unique craft of Bidri (a fine art of inlaying silver wire and sheet on an oxidized zinc and copper alloy).

This Limited Edition collection comprises designs which, though contemporary, exude an agelessness. The striking contrast of colors- the glossy silver inlay being set off dramatically against the matt black- makes for visually stunning pieces. The result is an overall aesthetic that is delicate yet formidable, understated yet opulent.

Mid Century Modern (MCM), more than half a century after its origin, suddenly feels very relevant again. Its minimalist sensibility, a preference for clean lines and pared-down designs seem to be exactly what we need as we look to simplify our fast-paced, multitasked, over-informed, frantic, internet-fueled lives.
