Foundrae was co-founded by husband and wife, Murat and Beth Bugdaycay in 2015. Each piece is based on a lexicon of symbols that Bugdaycay and her husband culled from different cultures and time periods. They create an inclusive language that not only appeals to the individuality of the modern consumer, but also celebrates a set of values greater than the value of gold itself. Beth Bugdaycay has many industry honors including a nomination for the 2019 “Emerging Designer of the Year” by the CFDA and a GEM Award for Retail Excellence nomination for Foundrae in 2020.
