Collection: Kaftan Necklaces

One day several years ago, I was browsing the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul when I stumbled across an old Kaftan. Immediately a lightbulb lit up in my mind and I was convinced that this was the start of a new collection for me. I bought the Kaftan that day but spent quite a long time pondering what to do with it and it was a few years later when I finally worked up the courage to make the first cut. I carefully began trimming out all the embroidered motifs, made with golden Sirma thread, then placing them into polymer clay shapes to preserve them. Using gold, brass, polymer clay, and modern jewellery techniques, I have infused new modernity and life into these beautiful pieces and I hope to share their ancient stories with you.

Necklaces are the foundation of this collection, and the first style of jewellery I created when I started to experiment with using the motifs from the first Kaftan. Later when I developed my technique for creating sirma pieces I added another variety of necklace to the collection. However the varieties you see below are just a sample of what is possible, if you have a specific request you want to make for a combination of different motifs or styles, you can send me a message to work on a personalized unique piece for you.
