Our daphne pendant is made by the acknowledged levantine glassblower Sadi Asfuroglu living in the Turkish border town Hatay. A region that has been hit by a massive earthquake in early 2023 that instantly changed millions of Turkish and Syrian lives. This necklace is inspired by the early anatolian civilisation and contributes to keeping the country's distinctive handicrafts alive and gives the artisans an income.
