Elif Dogan spent six long years studying glass bead training, crafting in enamel and stones, and jewelry design. The former marketing executive now brings a unique point of view to her eponymous Turkish label, creating luxe-yet-rugged handcrafted jewelry for minimalists.
An Elif Dogan design is a study in contrasts. The designer often pairs 18 karat gold-plated brass with oxidized silver, creating a blend of textures that is distinctly her own. She looks to her personal instincts in form and shape, rather than to past or future trends, resulting in modern designs collected by lovers of handcrafted jewelry.
