Etsy Favorite: Designs by Mehru and a Giveaway!

Welcome back to Etsy Favorite Thursdays! My personal favorite search word on Etsy is "jewelry" and I always get giddy and giggly when I find a shop with exactly what I was looking for. A few weeks ago I was browsing the Etsy world in search of a unique, stunning silver ring. Guess what? I found it at Designs by Mehru's shop. She (the ring) was perfect, delicate, and affordable. Score one for me. Now, let's get to know Mehru a little better...


1- When did you open your store and where are you based (country, city)?
I opened up Designs by Mehru fall of 2010, after moving back home from Italy, where I studied jewelry design. I live in a small town called Datca (south of Turkey). I design and make my jewelry from my home studio.

2- What inspired you to open a store and start designing jewelry?
I've been interested in various kinds of arts such as fine-art, photography since I was 14. Finally, I decided that I wanted to design and make jewelry and I went to Florence, Italy to study this specifically. For almost 6 years now I have been designing and making one of a kind jewelry. I'm also really interested in Ancient Roman designs (jewelry and architecture) and Turkish decorative arts (jewelry, ornaments and architecture) so I try to derive inspiration from these sources.
