About Us

Every piece at Bonfire Design is hand crafted with care from start to finish in my studio in the Pacific Northwest. I create bohemian, pagan, hippie style silver jewelry for women who want to make a bold statement with an elegant touch. I am a self taught silversmith running the whole show at Bonfire Design in our home studio in the middle WA state next to the Wenatchee river. I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey. I immigrated to USA when I was 23 to pursue an academic career but at the end of that journey, I have decided to change my path and turned my passion for silversmithing into a business. That was the best choice I've ever made! My husband Aaron is a drum maker and builds gorgeous tank drums. To see his work click here for Bonfire Drums. We have the cutest toddler on earth named Jack. He is a natural born drummer and like every other toddler loves banging on everything he can reach and motivates his mama and papa while we are working. Last but not least, our most furry family member is Lennon. He is a senior corgi who has been with us for over 10 years. Aaron and I met in Seattle 12 years ago and we have been inseparable since then. We love music and playing drums every chance we get. When we are not jamming we love going to music festivals and we can often be found vending.

We love what we do and the way we do it... ♥
Müge Bonfire Design has also an Etsy shop. That's actually where we have started this journey. Since it's older and well established, please see our shop on Etsy to check out our more than 200 excellent 5 star reviews!
