Turkish needle lace nickel-free earrings with plump strawberries, delicate flowers and intricate greenery.
These little hand made beauties are just as tempting as the real fruits of summer. They look gorgeous paired with denims of all types. Imagine them with casual denim shirts, sundresses and jeans. In the winter, try them with woolly jumpers for a mix of interesting textures and a little hint of summer's sweetness.
This jewellery is individually hand made in Turkey, as it has been for many centuries.
Patterns are created by knotting the high-quality silk or cotton thread with a small needle.
The history of Turkish Needlework – or Needle Lace – goes back to the roots of Turkish traditional hand crafts and society. The flower designs, many of which you can see in the A Keles Collection, go back to a time when women would make keepsakes for their husbands in times of war.
