Billur is a true artisan with passion and eye for beauty. Growing up in Istanbul she describes her childhood experiences as being toasted between Eastern and Western cultures. She has also been torn between two paths: To solve the riddles of our universe and gaze into the Milky Way and the desire to capture and describe moments of everyday life in my sketches. After a long soul-searching period and working at odds she finally had the courage to follow the second path.
Reentering college and studying graphic design, learning Japanese, and feeling enamored with their culture, she was so sure about making her way to Japan. Fast forward to the near future she was in Italy, she attended this very prestigious school, Alchimia Contemporary Jewelry School in Florence. It was an intense experience.
Here is a quote from her about our amazing cooperation:
In a 15 year span, a lot has happened, and looking back, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around everything that went on. I must admit, even though I saw myself being in full control, some of the best things that happened to me, happened out of dumb luck. This journey called “my life” has taken me from one place to another, from one state of mind to another, only to drop me off at yet another beginning: Collaborating with Saecula Jewels. So seek my pieces out in your everyday encounters and if you stumble upon any, just let them bring you that wonderful, precious dumb luck; find my haiku poetry hidden in their boxes!
