Calling all parents who love their kids and their drawings: a jewelry company is heeding the call to make your kids’ works of art into jewellery pieces you can wear.
Tasarim Takarim, which translates into I Wear Design, is a Turkish jewellery company created by two artists and mothers, Yasemin Erdin Tavukçu and Özgür Karavit. Together, these two talented women are bringing your kids’ artistic flair closer to your heart, one drawing at a time. And now parents all over the internet are praising the company’s efforts, so much so that this piece on the artists has gone viral.
Each piece is handmade and requires a clear photo of a child’s drawing. From there, Tavucku painstaking recreates the design that Karavit, a goldsmith, will create in a metal of choice.
These jewellery pieces are perfect for two reasons: the first is that it allows you to keep an important piece of your child, and in this case their imagination, with you at all times. This can help you think of your little ones throughout the day and showcases how special your child is to you.
The second is, at least in my opinion, more important: it shows your child that you love their work, which will, in turn, allow them to grow their creativity and imagination.
Artistic freedom is quite important for children, especially as they get older. Many children don’t get the chance to be as creative as they’d like, but art helps fuel their resourcefulness as well as opens their minds to new possibilities. That’s something that should never be taken away from any child, especially yours.
And by wearing a piece of jewellery fashioned from a drawing your little one has done, you are showing them that their creative endeavors have value.
Here are a few examples of what Tavukçu and Karavit have been able to accomplish.
1. What a lovely smile!
I bet this parent gets the giggles every time they catch a glimpse of this pendant in the mirror.
2. Long hair blowing in the breeze, and is that a tutu?
What an imaginative drawing!
3. This child is observant.
They even gave the bird some feathers.
4. Someone loves dolphins!
Or is that a porpoise? Either way, it’s a charming addition to any jewellery box.
5. This drawing has a beautiful smile to go along with bright eyes.
I bet this pendant will be treasured forever.
6. This drawing links a family together.
And it couldn’t be a better choice to make into a necklace.
7. This drawing of a pig with wings might be my favorite.
It’s a whimsical addition to any light-hearted style maven’s jewellery cabinet.
