Last October I started Jewelry design studies in Shenkar Collage for engineering and design in Tel Aviv. I learn the basics of design and metalsmith, it’s hard work, but I enjoy it much!
I love reading, hiking, watch movies and listen to old progressive rock. Unfortunately I haven’t got any time for almost any of these as I’m so busy with school and my shop.
What do you like about where you live?
I currently live in a town close to Tel Aviv, in a small apartment with lots of windows facing a public garden. I’m getting used to to living in the city. The thing I love most about my little place is that it is all mine, and that I share it with my boyfriend. As I’m unable to have a garden, I have a few spices and plants on my porch, I wish I had more!
Describe your style.
I create unique jewelry, most made using a crochet technique, using gold filled and sterling silver wires combined with semi precious stones and pearls. My jewelry is lightweight and delicate, classic and modern at the same time, but the most important thing is that it will make you feel special.
Where do you find inspiration?
I like organic shapes, and I usually take my inspiration from the material I use, its texture and colors. I find semi precious stones a great way to express my designs.
