On Etsy since 2008

IN LOVE WITH GEMSTONES

My jewelry atelier was founded in 2008. I studied traditional jewelry-making with master artisans in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Later I was trained in the art jewelry field. It is also called wearable art. In the beginning, I focused on bespoke handmade jewelry. My first contemporary jewelry collection had great success, but my customers were also asking for more essential pieces. Jewelry to gift or to use daily, such as handmade dainty silver earrings, minimalistic gold rings, handcrafted wedding bands, sleek gemstone pendants to wear every day. I started making engagement rings for my close friend's wedding proposals.
I still enjoy creating one-of-a-kind jewelry. I combine gemstones such as aquamarine, diamond, ruby, quartz, amethyst, carnelian, agate, tourmaline with 18K gold, 14K gold, and sterling silver. Along with that, I enjoy creating minimal jewelry in limited edition. They are sought after because they are easily combined with any piece of a woman's wardrobe. They make perfect low budget gifts. One of the most rewarding parts of my work is working on wedding ring commissions. Each time I start from scratch and create a bespoke, handmade ring that will be used long years. I not only use gold, but I also use emotions. It makes me so happy. All meticulous work and the excitement around its fabrication makes it very special.

I stumbled upon Etsy in 2008. I founded my shop shortly after that. I loved Etsy because it is based on direct communication with your client. I worked on commissions; I created jewelry pieces based on the needs of my clients. I took a much-needed break after my son's birth and dedicated time to him. I am happy that he is now more independent. I can dedicate more time to my shop.

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I hope you will have a pleasant time here.

I am a traditional goldsmith and aim for high standard craftsmanship. Therefore,
-I hand polish my jewelry.
-I use only genuine gemstones, appropriately set to last life long.
-I make traditional seats for the pearls with a swivel inside.
-I use sterling silver, 8K, 14K, and 18K gold, recycled when possible.
My work pictures are not altered but keep in mind that they can appear different under certain lighting conditions.

When ordering a ring, please get measured by a professional jeweler. I appreciate pictures of your hand to get a better idea and adjust the sizing according to the shank.


For a tarnishing problem on silver, keep your silver jewelry in a plastic zipper bag and wash with mild soap and a soft brush when needed. If required, use good quality silver polish but keep in mind that it is not recommended for stones and pearls because it can cause damage.
Oxidizing can wear away in time; if you contact me, I can describe how to re-achieve it.
Make sure you are not wearing your stone set rings when washing your hands. Prevent your stone set jewelry from dropping to the floor. In time, it can get damaged.
