beehive welcomes CHAKARR

CHAKARR was founded by a mother and daughter team in 2009.

The designer, Ferzan Cakar's creative instincts led her to craft many different forms of art throughout her life. After graduating from Fine Arts in Istanbul, she painted, photographed, sculpted, did ceramics, and eventually found herself in the field of designer jewelry in 2001. She was thrilled with the opportunity to create such personal pieces for women that they can relate to and find intriguing.

The brand has expanded to New York and now available at beehive designer collective!

INSPIRATION

CHAKARR Jewelry is inspired by the strong women figures in history. "Growing up in such a historical and diverse city as Istanbul, you have to reflect authenticity in your art." says Ferzan. Istanbul was once home to Ancient Greece, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. She loves referring to the strong feminine side of her ancestors which is why almost all of the pieces in the collection are named after ancient women. She enjoys combining their legacy of beauty with a touch of modernity - enhancing the everyday look of today's women.

CHAKARR designs all start from sketches, then they are sculpted, molded and casted to their final shape.
