50th wedding aniversary pictures

Metin's birthday

For many years, I  have painted portraits and scenery on silk. When I  became interested in jewelry-making and jewelry design, I  began by creating scarf clips for the silk scarves I  was painting. I  enjoyed making unique designs for the scarves so much that my art transposed into fabricating unique jewelry based on the designs and patterns of my scarves. Now,  my goal is to use the colorful flower designs of my scarves to cut, carve, and shape colorful gemstones as accessories for my scarves. 

I have Graduate Gemologist and Diamond Diplomas from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) the German Gemmological Association (DGemG) and   Gemmological Association of Great Britain (GemA).  

My Family

This is my family. Every time we are together we have a picture like that taken.



My greatest supporter and my greatest critic: my beloved husband Metin.



My oldest child is Cem. He is also an engineer like his father. He lives in Poland with his wife Blanka and their daughter Füruzan.



This sweety-pie is my granddaughter Furuzan. Daughter of my older son Cem. 






My son Ali Talat came from the States and my nephew  Burak came from England to visit us in Canada. Third handsom guy sitting on the left is my son-in-law Miloud. 






We lost my son Ali Talat on a very unfortunate


accident in US on 11-November-2011 







My youngest is my daughter Suna. With her husband Miloud and my grand son Tarık they live in Canada, Montreal. 





Who is this future gemologist??? 



The apple of my eye  my grandson Tarık who is very dear to me. He is my daughter's son.

This summer (July 2008) our beloved children and grand children were 

with us in Beycik for a very short time.

Tarık has graduated from Highschool this year (2009) He is a college student now.


My Furuzan's has a beautiful heart as her face is.

My grand son turned out to be quite a handsom young man.


My dear sister; Prof. Dr. Ayla Neusel and her lovely grand daughter. 

Tibet is a lawyer, he lives in Berlin with his family, he is my sister Ayla's son.


My sister Ayla's daughter Mara was professor in Texas University, I painfully must say she also passed away this year  in the States.


I am so proud of my sister. Recently she received  a medal  from the Austrian Government for the highest appreciation of  scientists and artists.
(Öösterreichisches Ehrenkreuz für Wissenschaft und Kunst).
Her grand daughter Joanne seems to receive the medal together with her...

My brother Kutay is an architect. 

The two handsom young men at the right are his sons.

Timur is the older son of Kutay.

Rona is the younger son of Kutay, he loves the dogs like we do.



My beloved sister Hulya and my handsome nephew Burak.
