I love oriental influences on my pieces. It is like traveling to far and magical lands. Like in 1001 night tales or traveling with flying carpet. Turkey is a country east meet west. Although big cities are highly European and modern still you can find traditions and deep culture also very deep folk cultures. Sometimes these traditions are originated to Central Asia, Middle East or even Roman and Ancient Greek traditions. Here is a hair fork inspired by my inspirations in Turkey.

The world is changing and as it changes we have friends and family members with different tastes. Everyday more and more veterinarians and non alcohol drinkers come to our tables. Especially when we are giving a party it is always better to prepare something for everyone. I am not a good cocktail maker, actuality quite new to this. I discover this recipe while i was traveling. I have been to a restaurant and they serve me a cup of water with orange slices inside next to my coffee. I loved the idea and try with my spring water and apple drink.
So this recipe is very simple. All you need a fruit, ı choose berries but you can go for anything. Mineral water and a juice of your choice. Mix your juice and mineral water and add your fruit to decorate. What happens is that by time the fruit also give its taste to the mixture and it is quite enjoyable and refreshing.
We all have white t-shirts. I love them. White looks clean, neat and elegant. But if you wear a white T-shirt only, it looks boring. Sometimes with simple earrings and a necklace we can rock a simple shirt so damn good.
So, recently i am working on these very simple medieval inspired necklaces with gold details to rock simple clothing.
olive wood earrings you can rock your style.
Finally, you need clothes to rock your style right? I love unique T shirts very much. I have looked at etsy to find out what etsy designers offers.
Makemaketess wolf T shirt
For a humor style Spara Fauri Golden retriever T shirt
Whatever you wear just enjoy your own style and rock it uniquely. We are all gorgeous.

I have been experimenting with stones. I find them magical. When i was living in UK i use to buy Chrystal and stone books and go to the stone shops to buy stones and speak with the sellers. Then in Turkey i have met experts who had studied stones in the University and travel around the world to search great stones. This stone is bought from expert shop. And the wood is a precious wood use for making jewelry. The story behind this product is just the universe. When ı look at gold leaves and black and blue i see the universe and our world. It is kind of inspired from medieval maps or magical lost maps.
