Behind the Labels – Bohemian Diesel Marketplace
Hey foxes, I’m super excited and honored to introduce our latest Marketplace label to you: Temple of the Sun Jewellery
I think it’s a bit over a year ago when I discovered Temple of the Sun. Back then photographer David Hauserman sent me their first campaign (have a look here), and I fell completely in love with this brand!
And how stunning is this latest shoot by the amazing Melody Jasmine!? Natural beauty Sophie is wearing the jewelry of Temple of the Sun designer Yonna Derofe, which was 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… a city 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 streetscapes, 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 based with her family in Byron Bay, Australia, this inspiration has taken beautiful form; reflected in the exquisite jewelry she designs.Temple of the Sun introduces a range of jewelry that speaks to the past with a new language; one that honours the sacred and celebrates the beauty of the divine feminine. Inspired by the traveller… the dreamer… the artist… the seeker… lovers of life beyond borders…
