I found her process and inspiration intriguing. Here is a little bit about her unique and beautiful jewelry: "The works that I make reflect the delicate balance of modern arts with Anatolian motifs. I'm working with saw-piercing (cutting designs out of the metal), lost wax and stone settings techniques. From my mind and soul, all the models first imprint themselves on a paper. Afterwords, silver or gold, stones and tools accompany me on this exciting journey. I believe that this good spirit and energy is also recorded and stored in the jewelry and in its stone. You may feel this positive energy while having the jewelry on you."
- from Meltem's profileI love the idea of positive energy in a piece of jewelry or anything handmade. Its as if you can sense the personal touch of the item and knowing that someone else made it with care and love makes it that much more special. I know that I am happier when I am around these items and so I can see how that can be seen as positive energy. I hope you find her work as beautiful and unique as I did.
