Turkey stands at the meeting place of east and west. Positioned between Europe and Asia has made it a cultural interface for centuries. While powerful empires dominated the country in the past, today it is a melting pot of modern and traditional influences. This contrast, or “tezat,” of culture and landscape is what makes Turkey such a unique place. The intersecting lines & contrasting shapes present in the Tezat earrings seek to embody this contrast. As the positive shapes speak, so do the negative ones; two voices inhabiting the same space.
