Founded by sisters, Meyla Ruwin & Nevra Shapiro – Beksan Designs shares their Turkish heritage through its original designed jewelry, cotton,  silk & pashmina scarves and other hand picked treasures from the cobble stone streets of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar.

San Francisco, CA – October 16, 2012 – Beksan works directly with local Turkish artisans to create unique one of a kind designs, along with hand-selected jewelry and accessories of the finest quality for each of their collections. Each piece beautifully captures the essence of Turkish art and artistry.

The one-of-a-kind Turkish collections at Beksan Designs can be found online, through quality boutiques in the LA and the Bay Areas and through in-home Trunk Shows. Shoppers can discover exquisite jewelry, luxurious cotton, silk, and pashmina hand-crafted scarves, and other fun and unique accessories.

“Working with my sister has been an amazing experience. I would never have thought we would start a business together but now that we have done it”, said founder Meyla Ruwin, “I couldn’t imagine having done it with anyone else!”

From jet-black onyx to sparkling blue and yellow sapphires, Beksan Designs brings you authentic Turkish jewelry of the highest quality. The original designs in their jewelry collection blend old world charm with modern glamour in fashionable ways.

Each scarf in the Beksan scarf collection is hand-selected and care and attention is given to the quality of workmanship, artistic details and designs. Shoppers can choose from a variety of cotton, silk, pashmina or hand woven/fine silk scarves.

The Beksan sisters created their Turkish Treasure Collection by searching the myriad of shops and bazaars in Istanbul looking for items that are unique to Turkey. This Beksan collection offers stylish kilim shoulder bags, handmade fabric handbags, colorful coin purses and glass key chains.
