Authentic silver, ceramic and lace jewelry handmade by Turkish craftswomen.

Jewelry has to be unique and personal. That’s why handmade jewelry is more than just a product. There is love, creativity and uniqueness. And that shows!

I hope you find the precious piece in this Anatolian jewelry collection to reflect your uniqueness and personality.

My name is Oya Yasayan and CraftAnatolia is my personal entrepreneurhip based in Vancouver, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I am a Canadian woman coming from Turkey, the country on the Anatolian peninsula. That’s where the name Craft Anatolia comes from.

Unfortunately in Anatolia, some handcrafts are dying -especially carpet and jewelry artizanship- which are mainly lead by Turkish craftswomen

It is heartbreaking, since those women try to contribute to their households and gain economic independence in their environment where they face gender inequality in employment and education.

I only work with jewelry craftswomen from Turkey, to enhance their feeling of empowerment and to contribute them running their businesses as much as I can. I try my best to support sustainable community development by ensuring that the woman artisans making Craft Anatolia products are paid fairly.

By choosing to purchase from Craft Anatolia artisans you’re also helping to push for gender justice in Turkey.

Production partners

  • Cini Ceramic Women Artizans

    Istanbul, Turkey

    Cini is a 1000 year old art. It is a special glazed ceramic, an impervious layer or coating of a vitreous substance covers ceramic body through firing. The artist must work slowly and calmly, taking sometimes a week to paint a piece that might be destroyed in a single second through some fluke.

  • Oya Needle Lace Women Artizans

    Izmir, Turkey

    Each piece of Oya is handsewed as a unique model by Anatolian craftswomen with cotton thread and only a small sewing needle. It is made by taking the needle and thread and forming loops which are tightened into knots. The tightness of the knots creates small square and triangular stitches.

  • Silver Kazaziye Jewelry Craftswomen

    Trabzon, Turkey

    Kazaz is one of the hardest handmade jewelry technique. All of Kazaz jewelry are hand-made by woman artizans in Turkey with 1000 carat silver. A strand of pure silver so thin as one strand of human hair is wrapped over a very thin silk thread with the help of a spinning wheel.

  • Telkari artizans

    Mardin, Turkey

    The Telkari artizanship was founded in Southeastern Turkey, in Midyat province of Mardin city around 3000 BC. The CraftAnatolia collection comes from best artisans who follow the footsteps of the ancient jewelers of Mesopotamia.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

How to store pure silver Kazaz Art jewelry?

When you are not wearing your pure silver jewelry, store it away from moisture in a sealed container such as an air tight bag. Ensure the jewellery is dry before storage. This will prevent tarnishing over a long period of time.

How to care for bronze mounted cini ceramic jewelry?

Cleaning bronze is pretty straightforward. First, use a jewelry polishing cloth to wipe your bronze jewelry. Then apply some mild soap to the piece, and rub it to take out any dirt that has accumulated. After the item is cleaned, rinse it with water, and dry it using a towel.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All CraftAnatolia.com jewelry comes in a pretty gift box with ribbon as shown in the last photo of product images.

Sizing details

The measurements of the pieces provided on CraftAnatoliaCom Etsy Shop are as accurate as possible to provide a guide for our customers.

What metals are used during production?

All Kazaz Art jewelry pieces are woven with 1000 carat (100% pure) silver. Kazaz is a 5000 years old handmade jewellery technique from the Caucasus and still living in the northern Anatolian city Trabzon. It is a weaving technique that uses 0.08 millimeter (approximately the thickness of a hair) 100% pure silver wire (1000 carat) wrapped around silk threads with the help of a spinning wheel (no power tools are used). This silver wire becomes very strong and flexible so that it can be woven without breaking.
The matte finish of the Kazaz wire gives Kazaziye's remarkable pieces a timeless, vintage look. In Trabzon we work with several women‘s workshops in order to guarantee the best quality.
Closures and hooks are 975 carat silver.
