Artist list

Özay Emert
When I look at Özays jewelry I am usually dazzled by its beauty, fragility and toughness. A mixture of old fashioned romance, spirituality, and the modern day tough climate. As they are portrayed with much heart and soul, it is hard not to fall in love with them.

- Elisabeth Kvist

Özay Emert is a very talented jewelry artist from Turkey. In 2008 she got her MFA degree at HDK (School of Design and Crafts) in Gothenburg. In this project, she has drawn inspiration from her Turkish cultural heritage. The collection of jewelery called Either seem as you are or be as you seem is inspired by objects used by Sufi Dervish for head resting during their pray, in 13 century. " I think our preoccupation with material rather than spiritual things has CAUSED us to overlook the beauty of religion. "
- Özay Emert

Be like the sun in affection, in compassion
Be like the night in hiding faults
Be like a river in favors, in benevolence
Be dead in anger, in nervosity
Be like earth in modesty, in honesty
Either seem as you are, or be as you seem.

- Mavlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi
