Turkish Hand-beaded Choker

60.00 AUD

The cobbled alleyways of Sirince in western Turkey are lined with tiny stalls selling gorgeous handmade products. Everything from crocheted dresses and dried mimosa crowns, to olive oil soaps and handmade jewellery. As luck would have it, we were staying across the road from a beautiful young Turkish jeweller named Özlem Vardar, who was selling these beach-vibed chokers handmade with soapstone beads.
I’ve held onto one, to remind myself of those sunshiney afternoons spent sipping Turkish narince wine by the Mediterranean Sea, but this one just might be your perfect summer neck adornment.
