I sat in a little apartment in Istanbul, the tiniest crochet hook in my hand, learning to make lace on the edge of an old t-shirt. I never imagined that would become my full-time job.
It all started when I moved home from Turkey and wanted to stay connected to the lace work I learned there. I thought it wouldn’t be that hard to start a business and make crocheted jewelry. Little did I know how much work and evolution go into making a successful business.
My first pieces were made with wood and lace, crocheting onto the edge of pieces I drilled holes in. They were beautiful and I loved making them but I knew I needed to elevate them and that’s where metal came in. Learning to work with metal and combining the lace with it elevated my jewelry from boho to chic.
Flash forward five years. I’ve been lucky enough to have more than FIVE THOUSAND happy customers and hundreds of people wear my best selling Droplet Earrings.
