Céline and Serpil Guneysu






Hi, I'm Céline from Paris...
After architecture studies and many years working as graphic designer, my creative brain was satisfied but not my fingers. So, I decided to conciliate both sides. Now, my brain and my hands work in perfect harmony to create jewels and accessories proudly worn by Parisian women (and myself), and I hope soon by women all over the world, thanks to Etsy.
I work in my no-pets-smoke-free home, and sometimes I work outdoors with my big basket full of materials on a park bench in Paris, all day long. When I don't make jewels, I design pop-up cards, play piano, or ride my bicycle through Paris (that is very dangerous but so funny).
Voilà ! 


Serpil Guneysu





  I'm a jewelry artist and metalsmith. I create handmade sterling silver and metal jewelry designs at my home in Istanbul. On my jewelries you will find ethnic, archaeological ancient / historical references combined with a modern contemporary twist. Together with sterling silver, bronze, copper and brass I use pearl, semi-precious gemstones, wood and sea shell. I create my jewelries by the help of my hands, my soul and my energy, so I believe each of them has got different feelings than computerized, identical machine produced items on jewelry sector in this century.

I use sterling silver on my jewelries because sterling silver looks and shines fantastic. I believe it has got wonderful energy. At the same time it is an anti microbial and a noble metal, so your skin feels very nice and comfortable with sterling silver in contrast with other materials.

I have got a biologist diploma from Istanbul University and I have studied archaeology one year at the same University but I have always wanted to be a creative artist because creativity is the most important thing that gives me energy and I started to create some jewelries with metals at 2007.
