Introducing Surmeyi Customer Edits

Surmeyi is a jewelry and accessories brand that aspires to create objects that evoke your sense of belonging; in your community, in your space and with yourself.

Over the last couple of months we have loved creating Qalam with your feedback, so as we started work on jewelry, we looked to see what was the best way to include you in the process.

We thought, what if we could involve one of you, from this community, very deeply in the process of designing the pieces. Someone who could be your voice and have the full context, while providing us feedback!

 “To that point, the collaboration with Surmeyi happened –– an idea, a connection, the attention to using food, the mango in this case, as the symbol connecting us back to our ancestors, with the consideration of working with artisans who carry the knowledge from their previous generations, while keeping sustainability, responsibility and legacy as the gift to the next generation, with love.

Both the designs are a wonderful expression of joy, love, support and happiness that Madhushree hopes she embodies in life. Each piece reminds us of hot Delhi summers, sweet mangoes our parents brought for us, the ambi, a symbol of home, prosperity, and love.”
