I love the necklace!! I have bought several pieces from you before and I am never disappointed! Do you have an actual shop address in Israel? I am planning on visiting again next year.

About

Not Just Adornments

There is something about jewelry that is so personal. It does not only express taste, but also says something about the character of the wearer. Since ancient times, jewelry was not simply an adornment, but had added meaning and purpose. It had healing, protective and status signifying powers.

While I really appreciate modern handmade jewelry, my hunger is for the beautiful tribal or ethnic jewelry from around the world. It's a passion, an illness even with me. I collect what I find beautiful. I research the stories. I visualize the maker hunched over with his primitive tools to make an exquisite piece of jewelry that I found and I dream up the women who may have worn it over the ages. Sometimes I think I hear their voices or smell their perfumes. To me these pieces of jewelry are a heritage, precious receptacles of culture that have come to me through time. They are here even though their original owners may be long gone. My mission is to save them from being melted down or maltreated and to transport them to your caring homes, to be loved again and worn again and this work gives me enormous pleasure.
