Living in Gaziantep, 43-year-old Fatma Öztop’s love for Japanese beads led her to pursue making a living through “miyuki,” or Japanese beads, after attending a jewelry design course three years ago. Selling her products in a business that she launched with her partner one year ago, Öztop is working to make her products popular through social media promotions of her brand, which she named after her children.
Fatma Öztop told Anadolu Agency (AA) that she attended a jewelry design course as a hobby when she was a housewife.
Having thought that she would never able to manage this job during the first few days of the course, Öztop said, “I thought the course wasn’t for me. However, after I encountered the Japanese beads, I recognized that my designs began improving. My designs began to look really elegant and I began to receive positive reactions for my work.”
