Blingistan was founded by Shamayel Shalizi. Shamayel is a queer multimedia artist who grew up between the U.S.A, Russia & Afghanistan.
Blingistan is jewellery that is affordable, well-made, gold-plated and can be worn by anyone and everyone. Blingistan is for the rebellious, the freaks, the descendants of immigrants, the PoC's, the politically-conscious, the ones who want to express ourselves through what we wear.
All the jewellery is hand made in Los Angeles, USA.
