About

I'd like to share my story with you, about how I became a jewelry designer.

Before I start, in order to really understand my story, you must know that I am a frustrated architect. By that I mean that I have always hoped and dreamed of becoming an architect. But sometimes life leads you in unexpected ways…

Becoming a mom led me into the academic world of education. However I always remembered my dream, and decided to pursue my art once my children are old enough.

Along the years, I felt like every time I looked to buy jewelry for myself, there was never something out there for me. I always knew I wanted the jewelry I wear to combine artistic designer style alongside a comfortable wearable aspect which was crucial to me.

I'd like to share my story with you, about how I became a jewelry designer.

Before I start, in order to really understand my story, you must know that I am a frustrated architect. By that I mean that I have always hoped and dreamed of becoming an architect. But sometimes life leads you in unexpected ways…

Becoming a mom led me into the academic world of education. However I always remembered my dream, and decided to pursue my art once my children are old enough.

Along the years, I felt like every time I looked to buy jewelry for myself, there was never something out there for me. I always knew I wanted the jewelry I wear to combine artistic designer style alongside a comfortable wearable aspect which was crucial to me.

That is when I decided to study jewelry manufacture, and started creating the jewelry I was looking for. But something was missing; I felt I needed to learn more about theory and concept, rather than just creating a "good looking" garment.

After a fascinating conversation with the founder of the sculpture school "Basis", I immediately signed up for a 5 year program. There I learned about proportions, well-built structures, understanding the manufacture of a piece and much more. I gave freedom to my artistic side creating my own visions into real pieces, without thinking about wearability and practicality like jewelry requires. This raised a critical question concerning my jewelry brand: how to keep a free artistic design even when designing a piece which is worn, and must be practical? This was a question that continued to fascinate me.

I am happy to tell you that I have reached the point in the story where it all comes together. After having a lot of experience creating handmade jewelry, and accumulating knowledge of art and sculpture, the last piece of the puzzle was introduced: The technology of 3D printing. For me it was simply a gift, because it allowed me to manufacture all of my fantasy jewelry designs which handmade craft does not enable creating.

With it I created my Netline collection - jewels that are not only my design fantasies, but also well-structured pieces; Very fine and precise looking yet strong and durable; full of artistic presence and uniqueness yet very comfortable and practical by being hollow, smooth, and light-weight.

This is how I created my own world of architecture, with jewelry.
