Ayshe's love of jewellery goes back a long way, to her chilhood. Brought up in Cyprus, she was given her first piece of jewellery at birth, with more pieces being added to her trousseau at each landmark in her life – from passing her 11+ exam to getting into Cambridge.
Ayshe carried her love of jewellery (and her love of island life and beaches) throughout her life, but it wasn't until she took a career break from landscape architecture that she started to explore the possibility of making jewellery. Soon, what started as a hobby turned into a full time obsession and a business. Originally self-taught, she supplemented her knowledge with part-time courses at Central Saint Martins.
Ayshe's love of the landscape and beaches, together with her Cypriot upbringing has a strong influence on her designs. While her Beach Bijoux collection boasts many gemstone beaded bracelets with evil eye and hamsa charms, she also creates unique designs cast from twigs (Twig Collection) and pebbles (Paradiso) which she collected on her favourite beach.
