Gunel is retired after working over 30 years as a nurse and living in Turkey with her family. She started jewellery few years ago when her friend asked her to go to the course to accompany her. A journey that started as hangout time with her friend grew to a bigger passion. She does a lot of knitting for her grandsons however still new at jewellery business.
She always loved learning new skills and challenges. Crocheting with beads did not come easy as she says 'it is a patience game to create a piece of jewelry. Just as you say I have failed again, this amazing product comes to life and gives me more drive to keep going. I love the outcome and I love the people's reactions when they appreciate. '
Gunel also loves travelling and spending time with her friends. She enjoys her golden years and makes the most out of it.
