Matty Frank's Profile

About

Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop and welcome to my world of original, handmade jewelry design.

My name is Matty Frank. I have worked as a goldsmith for the last 20 years. I studied the art of goldsmithing with masters at “Omanut”, a school in Jaffa, Israel.

After learning the trade, I exhibited and sold my work in 14 stores both in Israel and abroad. My designs were shown in galleries and shows in Miami, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Toronto, Montreal and Israel.

Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop and welcome to my world of original, handmade jewelry design.

My name is Matty Frank. I have worked as a goldsmith for the last 20 years. I studied the art of goldsmithing with masters at “Omanut”, a school in Jaffa, Israel.

After learning the trade, I exhibited and sold my work in 14 stores both in Israel and abroad. My designs were shown in galleries and shows in Miami, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Toronto, Montreal and Israel.
One of my designs was awarded First Place winner in a design competition of the Israeli Jewelry Market (Jewelry Borsa); the competition involved converting an industrial element, such as a bicycle chain, into jewelry.

My designs are influenced by elements in nature, such as flowers, leaves, acorns, and other parts of trees. I am always seeking new elements to augment gold, sterling silver and gold-fill, which I use as a basis for all my jewelry. I particularly like using transparent stones, such as crystals and quartz gemstones, which enable the reflection of gold leaf to show through from underneath. I like playing with pigments in different colors.

In the last years, I began to design unique jewelry to meet the personal taste of each woman who came to my studio. Every piece is handmade and different and cannot be reproduced. I use different stones, in varying sizes and colors for each piece. The gems I use are hand picked and each one has its own special character.

I think of each piece I create as a work of art with a personal touch. Designing gives me great pleasure and a break from my other responsibilities. I especially enjoy the feeling of giving a woman a beautiful necklace that she appreciates showing off.

I hope that via Etsy I will be able to meet people beyond my backyard. The beauty of the Internet is that it enables us to reach people around the world and brings us all closer without physically leaving our homes.
