About

Welcome!

For my 43rd birthday, a good friend gave me a present which dramatically altered the course of my professional life: a workshop on jewelry-making.

Thus, in my early 40s, I found myself learning to give expression to my great love of jewelry in a new way, by creating it.

My love for jewelry dates back to the early days of my childhood, when as a young girl I used to sneak into my mother's bedroom and try on her very special jewelry, all gold with precious gems and pearls, which I would carefully extract from her large velvet-lined wooden jewel box.

For me, creating jewelry is a challenging experience, one which has reconnected me, in new ways, to my inner self.

Welcome!

For my 43rd birthday, a good friend gave me a present which dramatically altered the course of my professional life: a workshop on jewelry-making.

Thus, in my early 40s, I found myself learning to give expression to my great love of jewelry in a new way, by creating it.

My love for jewelry dates back to the early days of my childhood, when as a young girl I used to sneak into my mother's bedroom and try on her very special jewelry, all gold with precious gems and pearls, which I would carefully extract from her large velvet-lined wooden jewel box.

For me, creating jewelry is a challenging experience, one which has reconnected me, in new ways, to my inner self.

In shaping my pieces, I think about the women who will wear them, women who like me and my friends, want something elegant yet comfortable, beautiful, yet versatile, suitable for both day and evening wear, as well as for special events.

My inspiration emanates from the nature around me: spring blossoms, the gentle sway of the wind, rain drops falling on the plants in my garden, or into the nearby lake, the breaking waves of the Mediterranean; as well as man-made elements, such as the broad range of building styles around me.

Geometric shapes have always fascinated me and I try to give them ample expression in my creations, enhanced by a flowing movement, such as appears in my Circle Collection, comprising three circles of differing sizes, which I connect using a special clip—thus, enabling their freedom of movement and friction with one another.

My jewelry is created using gold or silver, with and without precious gems, pearls or crystals, as well as leather, silk and other threads and ribbons.

Each of my pieces is unique. Yet, what they all have in common, is quality and precision and a style that withstands the test of time. All are created with a lot of love.

I warmly invite you to contact me through CONVO, with your personal request or wish, which I shall be most happy to grant.

I look forward to hearing from you.
