Today we’d like to introduce you to Arvik Ozcan.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Arvik. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
We took a risk started our casting business 27 years ago in 1990.
My husband Zeki is an artist, an architect, and metallurgist. For last two decades he has manufactured jewelry for retailers and wholesalers using his one of the kind platinum as well as gold work. I joined him in 2000, and combined my 30 years business skills I challenged myself and embraced the opportunity and opened the retail shop in 2000 next to studio! I changed my career path, earned a gemology degree and worked side by side with my husband.
We started to design custom made jewelry for our exclusive customers.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When we started our business we were one of the few casting businesses in Boston. Our small business was impacted like others when US lost millions of manufacturing jobs since NAFTA took effect in 1994. Despite the economical challenges we managed to survive.
