Goddess of Babylon

Temple of the Sun

Posted: Aug 18 2015

Jewellery designer, Yonna Derofe, was born and raised in Istanbul; the cultural jewel on the Bosphorous… A city, that since ancient times, has linked the silk routes of Asia to the markets of the west... A city of travellers, and one that has inspired merchants, poets, artists, pilgrims, crusaders and emperors with it's beauty, diversity and bounty.
Yonna spent countless days, exploring Istanbul's ancient Temples, Palaces and Bazaars, absorbing the rich tapestry of sights, sounds and smells. Immersing herself in the diverse blend of cultures and stories woven into the fabric of Turkey throughout the ages, she collected treasures, memories and inspiration.

Now working with her partner in Byron Bay, Australia, this inspiration has taken beautiful form, reflected in the exquisite Jewellery she designs; Spirit animals, archetypal symbols and pure creativity woven into gorgeous Talismans of Sterling Silver and Gold Vermeil.

Temple of the Sun offers a range of quality Jewellery that speaks to the past with a new language; one that honours the sacred and celebrates the beauty of the divine feminine... carefully designed and handcrafted to reflect a timeless bohemian elegance.
