That’s What I Do... I’m the Wire Wrap Guru

I grew up in Istanbul, the youngest of three children so I had time on my hands. Throughout my childhood, I always loved creating art with my hands. Whether it was knitting little washcloths for friends and family or waking up early in the morning to oil painting with Bob Ross. Making things always gave me a rush of joy that nothing else could compare to. In middle school, I joined an art club where I made collages and sculptures (fun fact: to this day, I still have some of them!!) 

In college, I was actually studying to become a chemical engineer but soon realized that it wasn't my forte. See, I have always believed that if you're happy doing what you’re doing, success comes naturally. Regardless, I finished school and got my degree in chemical engineering. After working for a year as an engineer, I decided to divert my education into business and moved myself to the United States to get my Masters Degree in International Business. Without realizing my fate brought me to the once capital of jewelry, Rhode Island.  I started working in the design department of a sterling silver jewelry company after my masters.  6 years after I decided to have my own business and my own line. I started working with sterling silver wires as thin as 28 gauge (a little thicker than a couple of strands of hair) and started wrapping various gemstones. At first of course they weren't as I imagined and would like to be. Just like my math teacher told me, repetition is key. Long story short, don’t be afraid to try new things and if you mess up, just keep trying, who knows? Maybe, one day you might find that you’re good at what you do. Here is a sample video of how I do some of my wire wrappings:
