Turkish Delight

Post image for Turkish Delight

My eyes keep dazzling over these beautiful Mediterranean inspired rings, they look like heirlooms that have come from some royal Turkish family. I tried every single one on my fingers and was captivated with their presence. They look so powerful as if they could cast magic at any given time!

Here’s a little about the designer.

Bora

Born in Turkey, Bora’s experience immersed in Mediterranean culture is one of the many things that inspires the jewelry that he makes today. His dream when coming to the US was to be a musician, but his creativity and imagination led him towards jewelry design, allowing him to use his engineering background to carefully craft his designs with close attention to detail and dimensions. His favorite material to “play” with is oxidized silver as he appreciates the historic quality of the metal, and his pieces are an abstract and interesting addition to any look.

 He works from his studio in Brooklyn, NY to create statement jewelry reminiscent of textiles and motifs found in the Mediterranean and his home country of Turkey.

 We hear at home office love his work they look extra special on too.

I bought several of his pieces this weekend. I am entranced with his work!

I love that these projects are all wintery without screaming Christmas. I would be over the moon if I knew how to make that fringe garland! It would probably cover my entire house.

So cute! My extended family came over for the holidays and the young ones and I made a blanket fort in my room. We have been having camp-outs together and plan to stay up and wait for santa in our fort on Christmas Eve.
Cat Horn -Dec 23, 2010, 10:49AM
Blanket forts are so wonderful. The second one is so beautiful and romantic.

Post image for fp nashville

something really cool from our store team!

in november we opened our 39th store in nashville, TN in the mall at green hills. we’ve begun to create stores that are as unique as our product and one of the aspects of this store that has us very excited is the art finish on the storefront.

we were inspired by the idea of hammered nail heads and patterns found in nature – based on fibonacci patterns like the golden spiral found in sunflowers.

disc2_thumb

the geometric pattern was carefully created in graphic format and then printed full scale on the substrate. over 9,000 brass discs were then individually attached and sent out to be installed in the field. once the panels were installed an artist applied a rich layer of plaster and wax to finish the walls.

IMG_9131_thumb

the walls subtly glimmer and catch your eye from across the atrium. this finish took a lot of work and collaboration but we think it feels just right for our first nashville store! next time you are in nashville be sure to check it out!

so amazing…thanks for sharing store team :)

Tyne -Dec 30, 2010, 9:45AM
We are so excited to have you in Nashville!! The store is gorgeous.
Nicole -Dec 26, 2010, 1:16AM
I live in LA and recently visited my boyfriend in Nashville. I thought the crisp air and fresh layer of snow was the best part, until he took me to the mall and I spotted the new store. Absolutely fabulous and inspiring from LA to TN.
