Children’s Artwork Made into Jewelry
Turkey – Turkish jeweler Tasarim Takarim is making modern heirlooms of children’s artwork. Rather than let a favorite creation gather dust in a file, the jeweler turns it into gold or silver jewelry or small desktop sculptures.
Working from emailed photos of the artwork, the jeweler’s team takes around a week to perfect each piece. Necklaces, bracelets, brooches, cufflinks and desktop sculptures are available. Prices for a small necklace start at around $300, as each piece is custom made. The jeweler works in sterling silver and provides gold-plated versions as well.
