My inspiration comes from mythology and nature and the mysterious veil that connects the earthly to the heavenly. I feel most inspired when surrounded by nature and I try to portray that energetic and spiritual connection in my designs, using mostly motifs of branches, leaves, flowers and animals.
Although Jewelry design was a part of my life since a very young age, it took a journey to discover that this is my calling in life.
I was born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, to an American mom and an Israeli dad. Our home was located in the hills of Jerusalem and surrounded by one of the last forests in the area. I would encounter on a regular basis many of the forest creatures living around us, and that includes gazelles, foxes, snake and the occasional turtle or donkey.
I got my degree in Archaeology from the Hebrew University, with an emphasis on classical times. I loved delving into the mysterious cultures and fashions of times bygone and dreaming of all those treasures out there waiting to be discovered.
Once graduating, and after coming to terms with the fact that finding treasures was actually a very rare thing, I relizing that I can’t see myself digging as a profession. Back then, I had a strong urge to take some time off and travel the world, experience different cultures and discover amazing locations.
It was during those years of exploration that I started feeling a strong urge to get back to my long lost hobby of creating jewelry. At that point, my artistic vision was highly influenced by my studies of ancient civilizations as well as the cultures and places I visited along the way during my travels. Add that to my love to animals, my love to flowers and my love to plants, and that’s where my jewelry visions mostly come from.
I believe that every woman has a goddess in her, and just like nature has a strong spiritual link to it, we are also part nature with a strong spiritual link.
My jewelry is meant to remind the wearer of her true goddess nature and the powerful feminine power she possesses. My pieces are meant to empower women, bring out their brave side, and remind them that they are strong and beautiful and are able to achieve any dream in life, and of course to never stop dreaming. Once you envision it, then you can create it. Some times, wearing a crown is all it takes to remember.
