Celebrating Women of African Descent

Sisterpreneur; Linda Butare Mulira

While they say behind every man there is a woman, behind every Phenomenal woman is most importantly herself. We are our own cheerleaders.

This week’s Phenomenal Woman is Linda Butare Mulira from Naalya, Kampala popularly known by her friends as ‘Nunu’. She is the face behind the spectacular put together jewelry line ‘Umuringa.’

‘Umuringa’ is all about making bold statements. Its a fusion of creativity and femininity with designs that include delicate wire wrapping on semi- precious stones with rich striking colours. The pieces varies from stoned rings to sassy beaded necklaces and bracelets. You need it, Linda can design it. Wearing a piece from Linda’s collection guarantees you will stand out from the crowd.

Let’s Meet Her

What do you do?

I’m a Jewelry designer. My Jewelry line is called ‘UMURINGA JEWELRY’.

What inspires you?

Everything around me; things out of the ordinary usually stand out for me. I don’t like stereotyping and so the variety in which many things can be transformed also in a sense inspires me. I look at something and I can instantly imagine it being done in like 5 different ways. Variety is indeed the spice of life don’t you think?!

What makes you a phenomenal woman?

Isn’t it just a delight to already be blessed with a husband from heaven, two beautiful children, friends I can count on for whatever, anytime, anyplace AND be pursuing exactly what I want to? I think it is. Am not saying everything is roses and caramel, no. it gets bad sometimes and am pushed to the wall, but because I look for the silver lining in whichever way I can, I think that is a plus for me. I am obscenely optimistic.



Any advice?

True genius is in the arts. Somebody once said that and I couldn’t agree more. Don’t be afraid of let yourself shine, embrace yourself…work with what you already have instead of mopping about what you don’t and you will see just how creative you can get. Also, always be grateful to God and everybody else who has helped you realize your dreams. It goes a long way!
