Location of artisan makers: Turkey
Ottoman Hands fuse Eastern and Western heritage through contemporary and elevated designs. Founder and Creative Director, Deniz Gurdal, started the brand on London’s Portobello road and has been working with the same family-owned workshop in Istanbul since the early days of the brand, to produce small batches of hand-crafted jewellery. The name, Ottoman Hands, was inspired by the artisans that create their unique jewellery. Every piece is hand-crafted and plated from 18ct to 21ct gold on recycled brass or recycled sterling silver. Their jewellery is handset with semi-precious stones using modern artisanal techniques, which makes each piece authentic and timeless.
