Do you believe we are meant to meet people for a reason?? So far, many people have come and gone in my life, but there have been some that I know came for a very solid reason. From Murano to India, I met Ikroop Dhillon, the owner and curator of the Glass Art Jewellery brand Ikroop. She is inspired by the beautiful island of Murano in Venice and creates beautiful art jewelry in India.
From Murano to India with Ikroop
Glass Art Jewelry by Ikroop Dhillion is a unique Indian brand. Most of the collection is inspired from Ikroop’s travels in Murano in Italy where she saw beautiful art being created from blown glass.
It was so lovely to meet Ikroop with whom I chatted about India, Italy and everything in between. She spoke about Murano and how it is renowed globally for producing exceptional and highly expensive glassware.
Glass Art Jewelry by Ikroop
After working with the famous glass artist Atul Bakshi, Ikroop gained considerable knowledge of the process of glass making. She realized her forte and started making minimalist glass art jewelery. Ikroop’s collection is versatile and classy and is certainly unique.
There are various colors fused together to create pendants, rings, earrings and neck pieces. I felt that there is something for everyone and I even picked up a beautiful pendant that can be worn for both any kind of event whether a party or a business meeting.
Unique Jewelery in India
It isn’t common to own glass jewelry in India (as opposed to Italy). However, I hope that with brands such as Ikroop, there is diversification in a woman’s collection.
All in all, it was fun knowing Ikroop’s story and brand. I would have never imagined meeting a fellow Italophilie living only 7 kms from my house! Check Ikroop’s glassware business featured in the Verve magazine
Thank You Italy for another fabulous connection!

This couldn’t be more true and is constantly reenforced with the people we meet around the world

Very nice, Ishita. And yes, it’s a small world. You never know who’s right around the corner. I recently joined a “meet up” group here in Las Vegas called “Parliamo Italiano,” and while everyone doesn’t speak Italian, it’s amazing how many actually do and they’re all Italophiles!
IshitaDecember 5, 2017 at 12:07 pm
How cool Karen! I think every other week I am meeting a fellow Italophilie 🙂 It really is a small world. And thank you!
IshitaDecember 5, 2017 at 3:14 pm
Karen, did you receive my comment on your blog?? I commented on your latest post but could not see it.

Thank you for letting me know. It should have been posted right away as only messages of non-subscribers are held back for moderation, but somehow it made its way into the trash folder, but I found and restored it! Thanks for your support.

Wow beautiful jewelry! I love love Murano glass! I still have a pendent that I bought when I was 12! Its amazing how we connect with people on Social Media.
IshitaDecember 4, 2017 at 6:02 pm
It indeed is. Never thought the world would get so small as much as 7 kms from home 😉 thanks for your comment cara!

What lovely pieces. I love Murano glass and own a couple of pendants (gifts from hubby). How wonderful that you met! I love the piece you picked for yourself.
IshitaDecember 4, 2017 at 4:38 pm
I do too, some earrings 🙂 I actually fanciesd them even more after checking Ikroop’s pieces. Thank you!

Stunning pieces, and yes, I truly believe we are meant to meet certain people throughout our lifetime for certain reasons. Love this connection Ishita. Xx
