My mother always told me to draw or make her a picture or a card, rather than spending lots of money on a nice gift. I always thought that my mother was being bashful, but as I got older I realized she was serious!
Mothers appreciate a heartfelt picture or drawing more than anything! When my mom told me to do this instead of buying her a gift, I really didn’t pay attention to it. I instead went and purchased a nice necklace for her. While she loved the necklace, the next year I made her a card and she loved it even more! Although it means so much to them, it doesn’t feel like we are getting them much. Now, there is a way to do both!
Yasemin Erdin Tavukçu is a painter with more than five years of working with children on artistic and creative expression. She works with another children’s artist named Özgür Karavit. They work out of their Istanbul studio creating modern art and children designed sculptures!
Recently, they started a little side business on Etsy.com, and it really took off! They will take your mother’s favorite drawings and turn them into jewelry! They are currently taking requests, and it would make for a perfect mother’s day present or birthday gift!
All you have to do is send the image of your desired piece and email it to their master smiths and designers. It is also important to note that they work out of their studio in Istanbul and are willing to ship internationally. They are also open to suggestions in how you want your child’s illustrations made into the jewelry.
My personal favorites are the necklaces, what about you?
