Boodi Jewellery

Boodi Jewellery

Kuwaiti-born, London-based Sarah Marafie’s jewellery designs are a paean to her Middle Eastern childhood, when she used to explore local markets with her mother for old, tarnished Arabic ornaments, jewels and rugs. The resulting pieces are all hand carved from wax and cast in recycled silver and brass, and Sarah only uses ethical, traceable, conflict free, fairly traded gemstones.

A gemologist who learnt her trade working as a stone trader in Hatton Garden and in India, Lucy founded Minka Jewels back in 2016. Understandably, given her background, her jewellery is mainly gem-led, with minimalist gold designs that allow the coloured jewels to shine.
