Whilst studying at Istituto Marangoni in London, and during her years working as a fashion buyer, Leen always dreamt of building a brand that offered storytelling pieces. During her travels, she developed a passion for visiting traditional markets in countries like Pakistan, South Africa and Oman, to hunt for exquisite statement jewellery.
In 2016, Leen launched the first collection built around the linear ‘choker’ - a minimal take on the African Ndebele necklace that symbolizes power. That ethos continues to remain prevalent in all Lynyer pieces, each of which is designed in London and handcrafted by local artisans from around the globe.
Lynyer, is inspired by the singularity and symmetry found in nature, creating pieces that standout with elements that inspire and forge conversation.
