About

I am a jewelry designer based in Istanbul, Turkey. After getting my Urban Design Master degree from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Faculty of Architect, I realized that I’m more interested in three dimensional objects, sculptors, forms and art.

My first designs had inspired from city plans and landscapes.
The name of my first collection was “Texture”, which had different patterns, textures on jewelries.

I use silver, gold and precious/ semiprecious stones.
I live in a multicultural and historically rich country and they foster my creativity a lot. Gold and jewelry is a part of our culture and life. Therefore I consider myself lucky.
Since 2004, I work with different shops and companies in and outside of Turkey and sell my collections. I’m partner with local casting houses, stone-setters and suppliers. Everything is made in Grand Bazaar, Istanbul, Turkey.
Since November 2014, I also have my own design gallery in Beyoglu, Istanbul. If your path drops Istanbul one day, you can visit my galery at Turnacibası Cad. No: 35-A Beyoglu.
