Growing up in Istanbul in a home her family occupied for many generations, Gökçe was surrounded by decorative silverware, textile art and jewelry. Within her family, jewelry is given as heirlooms and passes between the generations of women. Each piece tells a story of remembrance and embrace, giving life to venerable objects. Gökçe's new creations appear modern but preserve the qualities of objects long treasured, kept safe for good reasons, and held close to the skin.

After moving to New York, she worked with designers, galleries and artists, which really shaped her as an artist and a maker.

In a world overflowing with disposable objects, Gökçe wants to create works that are unique and 'contemporary' (for our fleeting times) but also to be treasured one day as heirlooms. Each piece is designed by Gökçe and made to order by local craftsmen of New York City. Quality is checked at every step to give you pleasure today while measuring up to the standards of generations future and past.
