ABOUT THE BRAND
Beadzy's story began about a year ago when Zehra was exploring one of those summer night bazaars in Turkey. These big bazaars hold hundreds of different stalls from clothing to food, handmade jewellery to little souvenirs. Zehra who is a big jewellery lover herself, was in awe and could not help admiring all these amazing handcrafted items.
She then started having conversations with the women and learned more about the story behind their journey. Although crafting is traditionally part of Turkish culture, the last few years due to the economical struggle, many women especially housewives, started learning various crafting skills through free courses provided by municipalities and selling their incredible work of art in order to support their families.
Zehra's inspiration to bring these beautiful items to Australia and introducing the handcrafted artisan jewellery with all Australian jewellery lovers was the beginning of beadzy’s birth story. Caz was as passionate about the idea and wanted to be part of this journey.
Beadzy is not just a shop but a platform to support women. We both hope that in this industrial, fast manufactured era, when you are wearing one of our necklaces (which takes a minimum of three days to make with thousands of seed beads!) you might remember that you are connected with a woman living in a small town of Turkey who put their love into that special piece.
We hope you love beadzy as much as we do.
Love Caz & Zehra
