Beading A Better World With Omoya

Omoya is a jewellery brand that embodies the joy , force and vitality in every woman . A Zulu word signifying air , soul and spirit , Omoya takes inspirations from virtually everything from simple everyday items to visually striking objects from nature . The aim is to imbue jewellery with a sense of vibrancy and to lend geometric spins to everyday objects .

Meticulously handwoven and hand finished these designs are a statement on their own. The beading technique used is called Peyote Stitch or gourd stitch . A Native American art form , the technique employed is referred to as off loom beading pointing towards the fact that the pieces are woven only with needle and thread without the use of loom .

The beads used are manufactured in Japan and are called Delica beads. Unlike the beads readily available in the market which are round and irregular , Delicas are cylindrical and are of uniform size. This allows them to stack up snugly allowing for a neat and finished look. Starting right from earrings to necklaces and from bag accessories to anklets , Omoya jewellery is the best fit for a laid-back bohemian look as well as for a  formal occasion .

The brand’s association and collaboration with Prerana , Naunihal , a shelter facility for girls needs special mention and applaud . Prerana works to end intergenerational prostitution and to protect women and children from threats of human trafficking by defending their rights and dignity.
