Sinem started her design journey back in 2005 and she ran her own shop between 2006 and 2010 in Turkey. She likes working with semi-precious stones, natural stones, leather, silk and different metal products such as brass and bronze, usually plated with gold and silver. As she has spent most of her life in Turkey, which is a unique country blended with oriental and occidental cultures, in her work she has combined her cultural roots compiled through the years as the cradle of many civilizations, and reflected it on her work. Her designs are mostly composed of leather and metals, chains, Swarovski Crystals and semi-precious stones.
Sinem has moved to North Vancouver Canada in 2010, and likes sharing her work and experience in her new home. She has her own workshop in North Vancouver. In her designs each and every piece contains an element of nature at its purest form and reflects a personal environment that puts her mind at peace. Her pieces will take you to places past and present and that reflect the stark beauty of life and its simplicity. It is simply an exploration of the spiritual connection to the natural world around us. Since she has moved to Beautiful British Columbia Nature has been a great inspiration for her.
