Designer/s details
canan durukal


Born in Ankara/Turkey in 1961, graduated Middle East Technical University in 1984. Worked as a freelance architect/designer on interior design and decoration projects. Along side with architectural studies, I started designing objects and jewelry in 2002. I beleive that nature is the most talented artist/designer and I am very much inspired by it. I use various materials in my designs, mostly natural ones, including all kind of seeds, raw silk, textiles, raw hide leather, wood, driftwood etc…
I also studied on conceptual jewelry design, jewelry design using waste materials and lectured at Atılım University on this topic.
I attended several joint exbitions and performed an individual presentation on contemporary jewelry at Architetects’ Association in Ankara.

Description of the collection:

The collection here below is made of raw hide leather. Once dampened and given a particular form, this material preserves its form unlike other leathers used in manufacturing clothing, handbags, shoes etc. Also, as the material is raw. the surface is very convenient for various treatments and texturing. The pieces are cut, given a particular form, surface texturing, pigmenting; then binded up by stainless steel to form brooches/collar pins; or, assembled to end up in simple basic geometric shapes like circles, semi circles, hoops. The backpins are of stainless steel and the necklace cords are of textile.
