Folklore header. Sterling silver handcrafted jewelry. Made in India by Lai and Craft Stories

Almost anyone who grew up in India would have memories of playing with colorful wooden toys or fondly remember those folksy drawings, 'mandanas', one made during festivals like Raksha Bandhan. For a long time, we've wanted to do a collection that would evoke a deep recollection of the folk heritage we grew up with.

Presenting 'Folklore': a collection of folk art inspired contemporary jewelry, interweaving individuality, emotion, meaning, and symbolism.

Jewelry that will remind you of the India you knew. The one you continue to get inspired by. Jewelry you'll relate to at a much deeper level. The one you'll want to wear, keep close and pass on. Rooted and earthy yet colorful and chic. Culturally inspired but very current. Evocative by nature and soothing to the heart.

This collection is our homage to the anonymous artistic legacy gifted to us by all those who created and practiced folk art in India. Hope you'll connect with it and make it a part of your jewelry collection.....
