My understanding of the name Zeynep, it means jewel or fathers jewel. The Rockport community has lost yet another jewel, Zeynep Bakkal. Many of us knew her from the jewelry shop on Bearskin Neck and many of us have children grown up with her and Ilter’s son.
She will be missed by many.
Zeynep thank you for bringing your art and your craft and making it a part of our community. You were truly a jewel.
