"I like to have a play on the contrast between light and shadow as I believe it is key in capturing form at a deeper level."

This Istanbul based designer draws her inspiration from the aesthetic and cultural traditions of her country of origin, using the ancient lost wax technique of traditional Turkish jewelry making to create wearable works of contemporary art. Her work plays with light and shadow, elaborately crafted designs which pay homage to myths, legends, and the splendor of the natural world.
