Hi! This is Yocheved (yo-HEH-ved). My husband Aryeh (AR-ee-ay) are a team of jewelers and designers. My husband's background is in the diamond and fine gemstone industry (London, Belgium and Tel Aviv). My background is a lifelong love of beads of all sorts, stringing, setting, mixed media, assembly, and now silver working.
For many years we worked Renaissance Faires, traveling around the US selling our jewelry under the name Faire-y Gems. Maybe we've met before? Due to age and various health issues, we've decided to hang up our gypsy caravan and develop a business where we can work together from home. After much research, Etsy seems the perfect fit for our venue. we're always open to requests and suggestions.
By the way, "Parnossa" is a Hebrew word. The plain translation is "income", but the true translation is "sustenance"…
