Happy Valentines Day

I am not the most romantic person but when I finished these special textured wedding 👰 🎩 bands I felt all warm inside! 💙Must be the Valentines Day’s!

They are now on their way to Edinburgh to get date mark and hallmark. All there is to it to give them a final polish before they been picked up!

And if you are wondering, I got the permission from the lovely couple to post the image.

Happy Valentines Day everyone.

Almost a month into 2020

Well it is that time of the year that we all make plans for the coming year. I am preparing for the British Craft Trade Fair again this year and it feels like I have graduated and now will be with the big boys and girls in the main hall! A bit scary but hey if your are not scared you are not into what you are doing! See below my web presence at the BCTF web catalogue.

For the first time in its history British Craft Trade Fair is opening its doors to public on the first day of the fair. So if you fancy a visit to Harrogate (who does not, especially since the world famous Betty’s Tea Room is there!) why not come an visit me. The public day is Saturday 4th April from 10am to 5pm. Click here to find more about the venue.

Blanca Space


There is a new exhibition I will be part of soon. It will take place at the Flat Cat Gallery in Lauder, Scotland, showcasing artists and makers from North East of England. More info will be coming soon.


Events that you can find me coming up fast and the first one will be the Ouseburn Open Studios, Spring 2020. This will take place between 28 and 29th March. Come and visit me during this event at the Biscuit Box Studios. More info will be coming soon but pencil the date!


Did you know that you get FREE Royal Mail Special Delivery if you spend £50 or more on jewellery items on my website. And if you sign-up to my newsletter you get 10% discount on your first order.


Workshop bookings are open as always and many of them fully booked or almost fully booked. So if you want to do some thing with your hands in coming months do book your workshop as soon as possible. May be you want to make a special mother’s day gift for your mum. Why not make a special jewellery that she will treasure forever. Or better why not come to a workshop together and enjoy spending time with each other make lovely jewellery in the mean time. For more details on workshops please visit my workshop page.

That’s all for the time being. Until next time be happy, make things and enjoy life.
Best Wishes

A new beginning in 2019

It is exciting and in the mean time daunting… watch the space for more developments.

Preview Evening

Proud and Happy! At the National Glass Centre , Sunderland with my concrete and sterling silver jewellery.

Over the last 13 months since I have left my “proper” job and give my focus on creative activities life became calmer in many ways and hectic in many other ways but most definitely happier.

Another step…. Hallmark

Some of my silver items are hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office. I can now exhibit the dealer’s notice. The hallmark contains the sponsor’s mark (that’s me) which is EMT, the fineness mark which is 999 for pure silver, assay office mark which is a castle for Edinburgh Assay Office and a year mark which is a “t” for 2018.

Silver Journey

Since I was a little girl, I always liked jewellery. It is part of the rich culture I come from-Turkey. And I always liked silver jewellery and still go to same shop in Istanbul to get new ones whenever I am there. Never thought I would be able to create my own ones though…I had my first class in May 2016, and it was delightful. Now I want to do more. Love creating things….
