Sikara is Modern Fusion Jewelry and is a reflection of Mousumi Shaw’s life as a first generation Indian-American. Sikara is inspired from the Indian word, Shikara, which means houseboat. It symbolizes the journey we take in life which results in a fusion of experiences. Mousumi travels the world, where she works with her team of inspirational designers to create international collections. Although her ancestral roots are from India, Mousumi has been influenced by a multi-cultural world. Her travel and life experiences in over thirty countries have become engrained in her personality, her sense of style and the design of Sikara. "Fusion" represents our lives in today's world. It is a blend of our past heritage and a new modern spirit.
