As much as I take pleasure from creating jewelry, I enjoy the pleasure it gives to the woman wearing it. My jewelry is intended to make the woman wearing it feel feminine, empowered, beautiful and confident in who she is.

I studied silver smithing at The Technological Center for Jewelry Making in Tel Aviv. I also studied in India, working alongside a local silver smith teacher. What a great experience that was!

I hope you enjoy my creations and please stop by again, since I'm continuously updating my shop with new creations.
