Lynda Loughrin is a 29 year old from Co Tyrone. She graduated from university with an HND in Fashion Management and has 5 years experience in Visual Merchandising working in the following high street shops, Topshop; H&M & Urban Outfitters.
Being a jewellery maker she has developed a skill which allows her to work at something that she has passion for. Good design needs inspiration and having a creative flair like Lynda allows her to experiment with new designs. She loves to make items that are unique which she crafts on her father’s farm in Co Tyrone. Her aim is to design pieces that are classic, timeless, and bring joy to each of her clients when worn.
Lynda pays particular attention to detail and sells good quality high standard pieces using only the best components available e.g. freshwater pearls at high grade with sterling silver.
Her clients are offered a professional and bespoke personal service, where each of them can get involved with designing their very own piece. All of Lynda’s jewellery is handcrafted and no two pieces are ever the same.
“Tilly-Lu Christian Jewellery is handcrafted, each piece commissioned is personalized and designed on Mullintor Farm where I work from in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. I love getting to be so creative, I find joy making jewellery that expresses my Christian faith.
