‘Meena’ meaning heaven in Persian, refers to the celestial colours of enameling. Invented by Iranian craftsmen, this art spread through Mongols to India.
Created on pure metals, copper and silver in the ancient hot enamelling Cloisonne technique, it is now the design space for AnanTaya’s charms, pendants and bracelets. Devanagri Charms denoting individual ‘letters’ of the phonetic Devanagri script are crafted in brilliant jewel like Meenakari colours. A series of charms of popular motifs like mangoes, lock and key, elephants and a ‘hawai chappal’ or slipper, accompany the alphabets to complete a bracelet or necklace. AnanTaya offers silver bracelets that link up to become necklaces for your customized collection of charms starting with your initials.
