Fortunately for all of us seasonal sluggards and present procrastinators, Miami Design District has a fascinating and fashionable recent opening exclusive to the U.S.: Sevan Bicakci. The Istanbul-born jeweler’s pieces are heavily imbued with the atmosphere of his homeland, and it is with a deft touch that this artifice artist makes minarets soar and djinn swirl within minute pieces of handcrafted ornament.
