RANDA TABBAH Jewelry Design
Randa Tabbah is a contemporary jewelry designer based in Beirut. Born into a long line of jewelers, she established her own line in 1993 after studying at l’Ecole de Bijouterie et de la Joaillerie in Paris. Her creations embody her passion for handson craftsmanship, eclectic artistry, and high quality materials. Randa’s clever use of lines, space, and layers allows her to create beautifully crafted jewelry that is intimate, elegant, and uniquely expressive. She creates, now in collaboration with her daughter Sibylle N. Majdalani – interior architect and product designer - unique pieces that pay tribute to the beauty of high quality stones, and complement the natural contours of the woman’s shape. Randa is involved in every step of the creation process from drawings and wax molds to bench work. DE FIL EN AIGUILLE SHOWCASE Showcasing the latest collection “de fil en aiguille” inspired by the world of couture and its intricate details. Each creation reveals the most delicate lines of a fine fabric in motion, with pleats morphing into fragile and ephemeral organic forms.
