At Christmas my husband bought me (meaning I bought on his behalf) a gorgeous personalised message circle pendant with two rings, each engraved with the name and date of birth of each of our children. Up to today I have been wearing them almost on a daily basis because I am so in love with them!
Where did I get them? At the Marina Souq in Dubai, from Lynda Marion Jewellery. The owner, Lynda, is a super charming South African lady who has been handcrafting jewellery for 7 years after having started as a hobby and enjoyed it so much that subsequently attended courses at Central Saint Martin’s School of Design in London.
Lynda specialises in sterling silver but sometimes also uses gemstones such as amethyst or opal, or 18-carat gold in her designs. The beauty of it all is that because they are handmade, no two pieces will be the same.
Living by the sea in Abu Dhabi, she draws her inspiration from the lovely sea views and the stunning sunsets she has from her home, and also the beautiful colours.
Lynda loves a challenge and accepts commissions, as she loves translating her clients’ ideas into beautiful pieces of jewellery that they will wear and enjoy.
Her next visit to Dubai is on 16 March for the Marina Souq at the Fishing Harbour in Umm Suqeim 1, but you can also find her once a month at the ArtE, The Makers Market in Times Square in Dubai and at the Ripe markets in Abu Dhabi. Check the Lynda Marion Jewellery Facebook page for the updates.
AND, for Mother’s Day, Lynda is offering one of the Little Sybarites readers the opportunity to win one of these pendants worth AED 350 that she will then engrave with the name and date of birth of your child/children.
