In collaboration with Turquoise Mountain in Myanmar, Maiyet has developed a small jewelry collection to celebrate and aid in the preservation of Myanmar traditional craft while supporting local artisans and their families.
THE CAPSULE COLLECTION
This capsule of six elegant designs features locally sourced rare spinel stones and hand-forged Burmese gold. The recurring triangular motif chosen for this collection takes inspiration from ancient designs of rural potters and is a sign of good karma- a perfect harmony with Maiyet's commitment to artisans all over the world.
