UK jewellery brand Anburis launches
May 2017 – British jewellery brand Anburis has launched, founded by award-winning product designer Mine Bilgutay-Ozkurt: its Kaftan Collection depicts traditional architectural shapes and patterns within fashion garments, inspired by the designer’s home country, Turkey.
The Kaftan Collection is made up of four key pieces including the Thrones ring and necklace alongside the Sunshine ring and necklace. The collection embraces CAD and 3D printing technologies and each of the pieces is printed directly in plastic, brass or silver with the option of a 14ct or 18ct gold plated finish.
Mine Bilgutay-Ozkurt said: “I was inspired by elements of architecture and fashion from my Turkish heritage and wanted to transform and simplify these influences into a contemporary jewellery collection.
“By taking traditional forms and shapes and re-working them using CAD technology, we have cre-ated an innovative collection that mixes old with ew.”
