D.I.Y with Gulten Dye



If you are in Vegas and need something fun and different to do, why not get lost in the depths of your creative desires?  As children we used to have imaginations filled with color and vitality, but as we become adults some of us forget to allow ourselves to let go.   Letting go of stresses are the biggest challenges that we face as adults.  Learning to turn off thoughts can be difficult.  As we graduated to each grade level in school, the crayons that once made life so extraordinary as children began to disappear from the curriculum.  The world around us turned black and white.  Taking life seriously of having to be a certain way and having to act a certain way are instilled in us where we might as well be robots.  We can lose ourselves in this mindless world if we don't do what we love and follow our hearts.  Remember that art class we all took as kids in school?  If you were never good at art, didn't it feel great to escape the classroom from the black and white stuff anyway?  Art is like giving your brain a recess break from thinking or overanalyzing so much.  I'm starting to understand that the left and right brain must have a healthy balance and must equally be exercised.  Some people escape the black and white stresses with drinking, drugs among other unhealthy ways because somehow we all forgot to embrace the creative side that our soul craves.   


Gulten Dye's creative playground was equivalent to finding a magical unicorn!  I'm not going to lie, I have no idea what it's like to truly catch a unicorn.  I'm not sure if I ever will know what that experience would be like, but I believe this unique spot is pretty darn close to the magic of it!  As soon as I walked through the door, I introduced myself.  As I stuck my hand out for a handshake, Gulten welcomed me with open arms.  I loved that.  It's not often that you get a hug from a stranger.  Within seconds, I felt like I've known her all my life.  She is inspiring and possesses a beautiful soul that radiates throughout her unique pieces.  Gulten Dye has many beautiful beads, stones, and pendants that allows you to make whatever your heart desires whether it's a necklace, a pair of earrings, a bracelet or a ring.  Her boutique is stimulating enough to get your creative juices flowing!  I felt as if I died and gone to heaven considering the fact that I've always wanted to create my own jewelry line.  I'm excited that I can now learn from Gulten herself.  The artwork that graced the walls were gorgeous and were painted by local artists .  There are books written by local authors that were for sale including her very own book based on her life journey entitled Semi-Coma Evolution of My Intermittent Consciousness.  I love reading other people's stories so I am excited to read hers.  She also has a calendar of workshops and classes from jewelry making to journal writing.   Born in Turkey, she was a nurse and through her experiences of being a nurse, led her to follow her heart and what she loves to do through jewelry making.  Celine Dion and Rachel Ray are two celebs that have fallen in love with her work.  I am so thankful for finding this gem in a crazy city thanks to one of my best friends Johaira.  Thank you Gulten Dye for this Ahhhhhh-mazing creative playground! XOXO
Excited to read her book!
    Necklace and wrap bracelet I made.  I chose the yin and yang beads as a reminder that creative deprivation can lead to unhealthy balance.
