Kids make art—lots of it. Each day at school or at your own kitchen table they create, and create, and create.
I love my kids’ creations, but sometimes I just don’t know what to do with them other than thank each piece for its uniqueness, and then secretly and stealthily line my recycle bin. *gasp
There are, of course, pieces I want to treasure. But instead of just putting their unique masterpieces into the ol’ memory box (or trash bin)—the artists at Tasarim Takarim have come up with a truly beautiful solution.
Tasarım Takarım, a Turkish jewelry company, turns your child’s doodles into cufflinks, bracelets, necklaces, and more.
“It’s like a single moment of someone’s childhood becomes timeless,” co-founder Yasemin Erdin Tavukçu, told The Huffington Post.
Customers send Tasarim Takarim a picture of their child’s doodle and the artists hand-craft a one-of-a-kind piece from (typically) silver or gold-plated silver. The process usually takes about a week and prices range from $125-$295.
If your kids enjoy putting crayon to paper, then you probably have a mountain of artwork. Pick your favorite and let the amazing artists at Tasarim Takarim do their magic.
“When kids see the jewelry [they designed], they become so proud of themselves and feel very happy,” Tavukçu said. “They feel so self-confident. They really believe that their art is loved and appreciated by others.”
