A new beginning in 2019

I will be moving out of my humble home-studio to  a brand new studio at the Biscuit Box  part of the Biscuit Studios  that are set In the heart of Newcastle’s Cultural Quarter. 

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….
