Artist transforms your kids' artwork into beautiful pieces of jewelry
Children's drawings aren't always the most elaborate, but there's a certain innocent charm to them that makes them particularly special. When we grow up, we tend to wonder why Mom and Dad kept that awful drawing of them we made when we were 4. But it's hard to understand the pride that comes with showcasing such a peculiar artwork until we have children of our own. When your own progeny has created their very own artwork just for you, it's simply impossible not to fall madly in love with it.
Now, two Turkish artists have come up with an ingenious new way to flaunt your kids' drawings. Beyond just framing them on the wall or sticking them on the refrigerator, the creators behind "Tasarim Takarim" are taking these drawings and turning them into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, like necklaces and earrings. Have a look at these.
What started out as a stick figure by a 6-year-old has been turned into a gold-plated silver necklace with the most peculiar, beautiful design. The resulting accessory looks both mischievous and adorably innocent, two qualities which perfectly sum up the magic of childhood.
5-year-old Keremcem Tam is the "designer" for this piece, as the artists at Tasarim Takarim like to credit the children behind each artwork. This adorable little angel comes with the beautiful lack of clarity that kids' drawings usually involve: Is that hair or a pair of wings? In the end, it doesn't matter. It makes for the most precious ornament regardless.
This one was created by a 4-year-old, and is both incredibly stylish and adorably childlike. Tasarim Takarim have created countless pieces of jewelry like this – creations that will allow you to hold on to mementos of your children's creativity forever, right up against your heart.
