Hi and welcome!

Originally educated as a Designer in Canada and the Netherlands, I eventually chose Istanbul as my home. Richly steeped in history, the Grand Bazaar has had deep roots in jewelry making since the Ottoman empire. I trained with master craftsmen here for about 5 years before creating the Emma Krafft brand, named after my German-born great grandmother. I create each piece with the utmost care, and hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I love making them!


ABOUT THE BRAND

"Preserving tradition is the core of my design philosophy - traditions of jewelry making and also the preservation of heirloom jewelry pieces through the generations"


HANDMADE AND ETHICAL
With the approach of a professional designer and the hands of a certified jeweler and metalsmith, all orders are designed and handmade in Istanbul using traditional metalsmithing techniques. In contrast to machine made jewelry, handmade pieces both embody the spirit of the maker and are environmentally ethical.

Embodying also the spirit of family traditions, each piece is designed and made to be treasured and passed down as a family heirloom.

Great care is taken into sourcing stones using ethical means and materials are reused and recycled whenever possible - to the highest design standards.


LOCAL AND TRADITIONAL MAKING
The Grand Bazaar, located in the center of Istanbul, can be defined as one of the world’s oldest and largest jewelry hubs, having been the center of craft and trade activity for more than five centuries.

Trained by master craftsmen, Emma Krafft Jewellery is founded on the idea of preserving the jewelry making culture by looking at it through a modern design lens. Traditional methods are quickly disappearing due to machine making techniques, making new generation maker culture especially important in keeping the centuries-old traditions alive.
