Katrina Kelly Istanbul, Turkey









The Clash of the Turks-Pagans, Romans, Christians, Constantinople, Tribes, Sultans, Suleyman, Ottomans, Muslims, Muhammad. AND, Tulips, Scarves, The Bosphorus, Yalis (Villas on the Sea), Spices, Jewelry, Gold, Bazaars, Prayers, Kebabs, Minarets, Density, Calligraphy and Genuine Generosity, is what Istanbul is made of. If one understands Istanbul’s political, religious and artistic history, then one is innately drawn to this land of fusion and collision . Half of the city is on Asia; the other half on Europe; half of the women done scarves on their heads, the other half done bleach, half of the cafes serve backgammon boards and Turkish coffee, the other half are newly opened Starbucks, sadly…The vast Ottoman Empire produced some of the greatest and glorious architecture of any epoch. Turkey is incessantly one of my strongest jewelry inspirations. And every trip back there rejuvenates my spirit and soul. Enjoy the pictures and future collections. Katrina Kelly
