Rengin Guner creates jewellery influenced by the Ottoman Empire, Australia, the Bauhaus movement and Japanese minimalism
After 13 years working in international news media, Rengin Guner relocated to Hobart with her Tasmanian born husband. This change in environment opened many new creative opportunities. The design skills Rengin acquired from her experiences in the multi-media industry, combined with her awareness of cultural diversities between countries like Australia and Turkey, fuel her jewellery exploration.
“My philosophy remains faithful to my cultural roots while refining my signature style and techniques with influences ranging from Ottoman Empire to vivid Australia, always hammering elegance into metal and stone.”
– Rengin Guner
