My husband first mentioned Adornments to me because he works with Ayca. When we were getting ready for the wedding (almost 2 years ago) I checked out her website and loved everything I saw. Ayca worked with me on all the details, updating me when she found new stones that she thought I would like. She also went out of her way to work within my budget while being fair to the amount of work and cost of materials she needed. Taking into account everything from dress color, skin complexion, and height of the bridesmaids, Ayca made four beautiful necklaces that my girls absolutely loved! And I was so happy to give them something handmade by a wonderful, sweet woman who really knows jewelry!

I have seen many pieces that Ayca has created and know that she is very talented; therefore, I knew she'd be the perfect person to design and make a bracelet for my wedding. When I spoke with her, she was very thorough and asked many questions about my style, my wedding, my dress, etc. She was willing to listen to whatever ideas I had and expressed ideas that she had. She asked what my budget was for the bracelet she would be making and made it well under the budget I gave her. She sent me pictures throughout the process to make sure she was on the right track. The bracelet was stunning and was something that was elegant enough for me to wear the day of my wedding yet simple enough for me to wear again and again after my wedding. I would highly recommend anyone go to Ayca for jewelry needs, be it for a wedding or otherwise!

Ayca worked with me to create wedding jewelry for me, my 7 bridesmaids and two little girls in the wedding. She was able to create unique and beautiful pieces for each woman in my party from bracelets to earrings to necklaces. All of the girls loved the jewelry! My little sister even wore the bracelet I had made for my wedding as the something borrowed for hers. Great to work with and great attention to detail. Would definitely work with Ayca again!

Ayca made necklaces and earrings for my bridesmaids and me. I was having trouble finding bridesmaid jewelery for my friends that they could wear again. I wanted it to be more of a gift than an accessory they could only wear to my wedding. I thought of Ayca because my husband bought earrings for me from her a few years ago, and I really liked them. I met Ayca at a coffee shop, and she listened to what I wanted and drew a few quick designs for me to make sure we were on the same page. She also asked that I bring a photo of each bridesmaid to that meeting, and she took those home with her so she could create something unique for each bridesmaid. She found stones that took on the color of whatever is next to them so they matched the bridesmaid dresses, but would match other outfits, too. I was so pleased with the gifts that I asked her to make my necklace and earrings as well. My bridesmaids also liked their gifts, and I've even seen them worn again.

Ayca made the necklaces for my bridesmaids and a necklace and earrings for myself for my wedding- I didn't really know what I wanted for either and so I kind of left it in her hands. She made a different necklace for each bridesmaid that was perfect for each girl considering her hair, neckline, etc. She was so easy to work with- coming to my apartment, making sure everything looked great- and all the girls loved their jewelery!

My husband's mom hired Ayca to make a custom necklace for me for our wedding -- about two weeks beforehand! -- as I didn't yet have my jewelry picked out. I was more of an offbeat bride, and before meeting with Ayca I was concerned that she might not "get," or be able to make, what I wanted. But I was wrong -- totally wrong. Ayca met on pretty short notice near a bead shop with a an example of what she thought she could make for me, as I told her I prefer chunky, bold, dark jewelry to anything delicate and small. Her examples were right on -- but even still, we went to the bead shop to double check that there wasn't anything more perfect. She took measurements, made the necklace, and met me again to make sure it fit and to make any adjustments in time for the big day (none were needed). The whole process was really reassuring -- and the best part is that Ayca really listens to what you're looking for, so no matter what your style is she can accommodate you.

Ayca designed a necklace and pair of earrings for my wedding. She was extremely patient and passionate about designing something I would love. She sent me several pictures of different stones and explained to me how they would look with my dress. She was budget minded the whole time which as we all know is RARE in the wedding vendor world. Once she had created my jewelry, she delivered the set to me to see how it would look and to assess any possible adjustments (which she did - shortening the chain on the necklace.) Her style and look is very charming, but can also adapt to whatever you are looking for - super dramatic, super simple or somewhere in between. I would definitely recommend Adornments to other brides and wish I had a little more bank available to get gifts for my bridesmaids! I will definitely be adding to my personal collection with Adornments' jewelry.
