Miriam Orth-Blau founded her jewelry line Meshugge in 2013. Her pieces are unconventional and unique, as she works only with best quality materials and does all the designs by herself. The range of types of the ornaments she does is very wide. Cute little bracelets with engraved sayings can be found as well as big earrings with gemstones or silk chokers with dainty charms. And not to be forgotten: Meshugge is Vienna’s best address to get customized engravings!
