Children’s drawings symbolise the essence of childhood. We all know the saying “kids grow up so fast”. Although bittersweet, parents can now capture these memories and turn them into timeless keepsakes.
Tasarım Takarım (I Wear Design) is a jewellery company based in Istanbul that converts children’s drawings into finely crafted gold and silver jewellery. It was founded by two artist moms, Yasemin Erdin Tavukçu (painter & children art educator) and Özgür Karavit (sculptor & goldsmith). They believe that the children’s art is the primal building stone of the their creativity. The best way to encourage child’s creativity is to love, respect and give proper value to their drawings.
Their project aims to show the children that their art is precious and unique by turning the children’s drawings into timeless memories, wearable art objects.
Many of Tasarım Takarım’s pieces are given to parents as presents, but Tavukçu says that witnessing how a child responds to seeing her drawing transformed into wearable art is the true gift.
