Beypazari, Ankara

This lady creates gorgeous necklaces, I've chatted her a long time. The table cover is from her trousseau... She use her heirloom to display her crafts now.

Beypazari is a place I've never visited before. Last month, we went there to take a short tour, had a delicious lunch. It is so nice and interesting place with its old houses. In the old town area, most of the houses has been renowated and some of them are used as boutique hotels. The town is also famous its silver embroidery, "Telkari". The origin of this amazing craft goes to 13th century.
