New Kelim's Jewelry Collection at Lireille Great for Travel, Summer and Everyday Wear.
MERAL SARTEKIN was born in 1960 in Akhisar, a rural village in Turkey. The free spirited, independent young woman left her country to study abroad in Zurich, Switzerland where she married Halil and gave birth to their daughter. In 1992 the couple founded Kelim, a boutique specializing in handmade goods from their native Turkey. Meral and Halil began designing jewelry inspired by the beautiful patterns in, the traditional Turkish carpets and the natural beauty of their adopted country, Switzerland. After the success of their first wholesale trade show, the couple focused solely on designing and producing the Kelim Jewelry Collection. Together with their nephew, Gultekin, they established our atelier in Istanbul, where a team of highly trained craftsmen bring each design to life.
Kelim uses silver in her jewelry and silver is the coolest precious metal out there, but aside from that, Silver has an additional benefit as an effective antimicrobial agent. It helps in tackling flu, colds and skin problems. Also, it could regulate body temperature as well as protect us from the effects of radiation coming from electronic devices.
Besides being used as ordinary ornaments, silver could be worn as eye masks or gloves providing benefits to specific body parts.
