8:00 Brrrrr! It’s cold…


8:30 I have to wake up! Coffee comes first


9:00 Breakfast time. I don’t leave my warm nest until 9:15. It’s Friday!


9:20 Already in the tram. We are crossing the Galata Bridge. Heading to Sultanahmet.


9:40 Heading to the post Office. I have an Etsy package to ship. Better to do it now.


10:00 Finally Arriving to the atelier. It’s on a lively street. There are funny rug sellers at the corner.


10:30 Let’s see what do we have here…Valentine Day is coming, I need a new collection. Am I late?!!!

10:30 This Is one of the rings I was planning for so long. Friday is my day, I can work peacefully. No jewelry classes. I work on my projects.


12:30 My neighbor is a designer too. We usually have lunch together.


13:30 Back to the bench. Making two rings in the same time.


15:30 A quick break. I have to stretch my back. And take a quick look to my books.


18:30 Heading to Cihangir. Will have a quick tea break with a friend.


19:00 Hande is a ceramic artist. We always have some mutual projects to discuss.


20:00 My boyfriend’s still working. I will cook the dinner tonight.


21:30 Etsy :) Chat at the Forum, new listings, follow ups…It’s fun.
