Lillian Ismail is a jewelry designer who embarked upon her journey by building her brand in 2013. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia, she reignites the faltering flame of her heritage by blending contemporary elements with Islamic inspired concepts in her designs. Her pieces, "artwork" as she refers to her designs, are used as a medium to express concepts from her culture and Islamic background. Each collection and piece tells a unique story of its own.
As one of the very few trained female Saudi bench jewelers and makers, she believes that the soul of the designer is reflected throughout the piece, giving it a different feel when handcrafted. A religious relationship of a different kind raises between the artisan and the material. Her designs are all handmade piece by piece locally in her hometown, Jeddah.
