YFS:  What was the inspiration behind designing these beautiful things?

Shirin: I always wanted to make something, fix something, design, and new ideas. I believe that most of things you need in life you can build by yourself. J So I always was busy in making things, knitting clothes, etc. So, when I grew and had got a chance to use my ideas and crafts that I learnt, I started my own jewellery and accessories business Ameretat Crafts.

Shirin: The thing I am doing is a new business. It is now about 2.5 years that I am in to making crafts, at first I started with my friend, as named “Craft Café” we worked together almost 8 months, got separated with some reason and then I started my own shop.

 YFS:  What is the story behind this name?

Shirin: I always wanted to give my business a pure Persian name. So I came up with “Ameretat” It’s a female entity which means Immortal.

Shirin: I mostly work with cold porcelain which is a homemade clay, and I also like to work with different stones, beads and wires.

YFS:   How much time it takes to make one piece of your art work?

Shirin: Depends on what I am making. Sometimes takes around a half an hour or sometimes takes 1 or 2 days to finish one piece. How much the piece is smaller needs more attention and detail work?
