ARTIST BIO: the lady who makes these necklaces is a Turkish retired artist that likes to combine elements from the Turkmen culture , like fabric triangles that are used in all their textiles and which seem to be given to power to bring luck or good spirits to any textile that display them, with bottoms, embroideries and ottoman elements. She has a very central Asian view of decoration, where the profusion of these elements create a sense of uniqueness. She also believes deeply in asymmetry: her reason is the conviction that we are all unbalanced creatures, so necklaces should reflect this unevenness.
