About:

I was born in Haifa, Israel in 1989. I had already become drawn to the art world in elementary school and thus decided to study theoretical art as well as practical art. Before my military service, I volunteered at a boarding school for a year where I used art as a way to connect with my students. On 2016 I have completed a bachelors degree in jewelry design at the Shenkar College of Engineering Design and Art in Ramat Gan, Israel.I have always loved jewelry because it has offered me the ideal form of self expression through imagination and creativity. Many of my designs have been created by using unusual materials which otherwise would be considered less valuable but whose final product have made them highly desirable. I use different techniques and draw inspiration from a variety of subjects, esthetics and experiences. My future goal is to continue with my work as a means of expression, connection and raising questions.

Specialisms:

Silversmithing

When metal and fabric are intertwined, they offer structure which is aesthetically clear. The intertwining of these two materials is the basis of this project. The method of weaving the metal wires into the fabric, leads to the structure of the jewelry. Throughout this process, I have been exposed to new creative possibilities together with dealing with the challenges which these possibilities present.
