A protective purpose
Virginie Dreyer, creator of TinyOm, was – in what now seems another lifetime – a lawyer in Paris. It was her family circumstances that brought her to the Middle East, where she has been able to explore her creative desires. She trained in graphic art and design and, seduced by the art and craftsmanship of local goldsmiths in Bahrain, her adopted home, she began to visualize creating a line of jewellery. Already passionate about yoga, which she practices and teaches, Virginie was moved to base her creations on its philosophy. What she desired most was to create jewellery with a symbolic value and meaning. tinyOm is named after the Om mantra, which celebrates the birth of the universe, imitating its original vibration. tinyOm jewellery carries this sacred chant as a soft caress on the skin, each piece designed as a talisman, weaving a precious link between soul and world.
tinyOm creations, available in 18-carat rose or white gold, are handcrafted in the workshops of the Al Zain jewellery house of Bahrain. Founded in 1930, Al Zain is one of the oldest and most respected jewellers in the Middle East. tinyOm is based in Bahrain.
A solidarity commitment
For each piece of jewellery purchased on this site, 10% of profits are donated to PHAR83 (formerly known as l’Association Presence), a charity that improves the lives of children and adults with disabilities in the South of France by housing and caring for them. With all of Virginie’s donations to date, PHAR83 has been able to purchase electronic tablets, tricycles, swimming chairs, and vacations, as well as dental and orthopedic care that are not covered by France’s social security. In addition, with the help of these funds, PHAR83 has recently completed a film on autism. Virginie is particularly fond of the most recent contribution, which ensured the creation of an in-house beauty salon that will be devoted to the pleasure and relaxation of the residents.
