Collection: Kaftan Earrings

My inspiration for the Kaftan collection is vintage textiles from the Ottoman Era, specifically the Kaftan which is a traditional style of elegant overcoat and the height of fashion in the 14th century Ottoman Empire. All the textiles used in the collection are purchased directly from the historic Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. From the original Kaftans I cut out the embroidered motifs and due to the fragility of the fabric this would often lead to lots of stray threads. I couldn't bear to throw away any part of these ancient relics so I kept these golden Sirma threads and pondered how to use them.

Later to create unique and beautiful earrings for this collection, I had the idea of setting the Sirma into hand molded polymer clay. Once set, each piece is hand polished and finished to remove imperfections. They are then attached to the jewellery findings to be worn with pride. The styles shown here are only examples of the variations that are possible, and if you have a custom request you would like to make, feel free to message me and we can work together to make you a unique piece.
