Vita Epstein's Profile

About

My name is Vita Epstein and my great love is jewelry design.

I was born in Israel and live near Tel Aviv. For many years I was fascinated by academic research in the fields of Art History and Middle Eastern Studies. I also worked as a jewelry and gifts buyer, which was actually the spark that started my love affair with jewelry. Growing up in a family of artists, I knew I had a creative leaning… but for a long time I wasn't confidant enough to tackle it.

Eventually, I decided to professionally study jewelry making and discovered that it was my calling. For the past fifteen years, I've been designing and producing high-standard designer jewelry – and it's given me great joy.

My designs are based on two major inspirations: Firstly, Nature. I've been hiking and tracking every month for 25 year…

My name is Vita Epstein and my great love is jewelry design.

I was born in Israel and live near Tel Aviv. For many years I was fascinated by academic research in the fields of Art History and Middle Eastern Studies. I also worked as a jewelry and gifts buyer, which was actually the spark that started my love affair with jewelry. Growing up in a family of artists, I knew I had a creative leaning… but for a long time I wasn't confidant enough to tackle it.

Eventually, I decided to professionally study jewelry making and discovered that it was my calling. For the past fifteen years, I've been designing and producing high-standard designer jewelry – and it's given me great joy.

My designs are based on two major inspirations: Firstly, Nature. I've been hiking and tracking every month for 25 years, both in Israel and in various exotic places in the world, such as the mountains of Tajikistan and Turkey and the Tour de Montblanc. My lines tend to be biomorphic – there are hardly any sharp angles or straight lines. Many of my pieces are shaped like actual leaves I found in my travels.

Another source of inspiration is my exposure to multiple cultures. I live in a multi-cultural society, and have studied both Middle-Eastern Studies and in Art History – so that East and West are braided into my jewelry, a mixture which makes it unique.
My close acquaintance with nature has led me to use genuine semi-precious stones which I carefully select and stud in sterling silver, gold and leather. Additionally, I have a line of gold-filled contemporary jewelry.

I prepare the jewelry in my smoke-free, perfume- free, and pet friendly studio.
Every piece is hand-made, unique and one-of-a-kind. I also cater to customers who prefer custom-made pieces.

Please visit my shop, take a look at my designs, and enjoy! I'd love to help you out, and to accommodate any request or question you might have.
