Sharmilla and Arianna come together to create MILLIANNA, approaching jewelry design from the perspective of fashion rather than accessory trends. Their unique interpretation of pop culture and fashion is infused with inspiration from historical eras such as Elizabethan England and various art movements, like Art Deco. “Our pieces are sophisticated and statement driven, reflecting a woman’s inner beauty and confidence,” says Sharmilla, “and that’s sexy.” MILLIANNA accessories appeal to a broad range of women, from young fashionistas to established jewelry and fashion connoisseurs, such as Iris Apfel. What these women have in common is a strong love of fashion and a great sense of confidence.
While Sharmilla drives design, Arianna oversees production in her hometown of Spokane, WA.
“MILLIANNA is an American, female-owned company that makes products for women by women,” says Sharmilla, “We partner with so many talented and interesting people-it’s a lot of what makes our work so gratifying.”
