Lika Behar was born in the magnificent city of Istanbul, and has had a passionate love affair with jewelry all her life.  Her family lineage is one of storied gold coin dealers and today Lika's jewelry elegantly reconciles the rich inspiration of ancient Istanbul and its jewelry traditions with a modern feminine spirit. 

Lika creates unique and intimate works of wearable art. Her collections feature hand hammered 24 karat gold - the nimblest of metals - pure oxidized silver, diamonds and a myriad of gemstones with extraordinary color. Each piece from the collection is uniquely hand wrought with the exquisite precision once celebrated by ancient artisans

 In her sunlight-filled studio, sitting in the turret of an old building in the Sultanahmet section of Istanbul, Lika, together with her two bench jewelers, works her magic.
