Gulten was born and raised in a small town in Turkey and moved with her family to Istanbul as a small child. It was there that she earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and worked as a nurse at a local hospital before moving to the Philippines with her future husband who was serving in the US military.
A short while later they moved to Shreveport, Louisiana where she immediately began her studies to be able to work as a Registered Nurse. While studying for her boards, she was allowed to work as a scrub technician in an operating room at a nearby surgery center. She passed her boards and worked in an operating room at a busy University Medical Trauma Center as a staff nurse for several years until she earned the position of Charge Nurse.
By 2001, she was divorced and living with her two young sons. Her desire to make more money became her impetus to start her own business, which soon became her sole source of income as her success grew. She has never looked back.
Gulten found her talent and passion in creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and sold them to well-known people, such as Celine Dion, Rachel Ray and Mary Higgins Clark. She became an international success when her work showed on Entertainment Tonight and Insider and was for sale in the Mirage, Bellagio boutiques for over eight years in Las Vegas. For a couple of years Gulten’s jewelry was sold on luxury cruise liners including Crystal cruises, Regent seven seas and Oceana cruise liners, allowing Gulten to travel and see the world in style while she gave lectures and met thousands of clients first hand.
It was during the Costco roadshows that she first started to experiment with creating interchangeable pieces.
After the creation of her first interchangeable jewelry line she tirelessly worked to perfect a “LEGO” of bridge line jewelry to give the beautiful women from all over the world the possibility and the tools to create their own unique, elegant quality pieces to express who they are through their jewelry.
Gulten is also an author and self-published her first book “Semi-Coma – Evolution of my Intermittent Consciousness” in 2011, currently selling on all digital media as well as in hard copy. Her second book “The Missing Link” was followed by, two poetry books and a novel called “Through the Silence of the Darkness”.
In 2013, she opened her new concept store where she not only sells her own designs, but includes many local artists of different medium, including a local authors section. In turn, for being able to sell their artwork in her store, all artists have agreed to teach others their medium for the future generation of free thinkers.
In 2015 she was two of the seventy stores that opened on the busiest corners of Las Vegas Blvd the endeavor was short lived for more than half of the stores closed their doors less than six months later. Gulten closed her doors a little under a year and was released from her lease.
Gulten lives and creates in Las Vegas, Nevada in her own boutique inside of Body Spa West.
