About Me

Hello there and welcome!

I'm Sunni Dineen, the Founder & Designer of Sunni Dineen Handcrafted Design, my namesake.

I currently reside in New Jersey with my husband & son, but Baltimore, MD raised me.

As far back as I can remember, I loved expressing myself through the accessories I wore and felt complete satisfaction through what I made with my own hands. My Dad, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a couple of years back, was a self-taught artist, builder, DIY-er, and crooner,  and was that one person who nurtured those passions and empowered me to embrace expression through self-creation and art.  He was my best friend, mentor, cheerleader and was the main inspiration and reason why I decided to turn my secret hobby of crafting and designing into a brand.

I never imagined leaving a 15-year career as a medical professional at the height of the global pandemic in 2020, and at the same time, becoming a first-time mom in my 40's, would spark the beginning of my journey as a small business owner.  Having no clue on how to run a business, and rediscovering who I was at the same time, has been, and is still, the scariest, rewarding, soul-searching, spiritual, and empowering experience I have ever encountered.

And, with encouragement from my Dad, husband, church ministry, and a tribe of empowered women, I embraced the vision I had circa 2017, followed my purpose, did-it-scared and seized the dream of designing and creating.

I am an artisan who believes that artists have the ability to empower us to become more self-aware, to make the deepest connection with ourselves and others, and to make the most impactful contributions to this world through self-expression;

...and, now I have the pleasure of sharing my designs with you.

So, thank you for being here and for rockin' with me on this wild journey.
