About

The story behind Urban Raven

I always had a strong connection to crafts and design, even as a little girl. I even had a jewelry design kit when I was in my early teens. Little did I know that jewelry design would be my life profession and passion.
My beginning with professional design started with studying industrial design in college.
but after a year and a half I felt like I didn’t find my true voice and I started to pursue a different path in the design world.
In a flea market I went to I came across a broken beer bottle on the floor that for some reason inspired me to try and make a bracelet from it. I tried it and it worked! I even got a lot of amazing feedbacks on it. So there it was, the start of my journey with jewelry.
I began with recycled and upcycled materials some organic like wood and leaves and some more industrial like glass, microchips and old coins or postage stamps.
It was exciting and challenging and each piece was unique and truly one of a kind.
I started selling them at art fairs and opened my etsy shop with very few items. It was a slow start but I believed in what I do and wanted to learn more, do more and create all the time.

In time, I wanted to learn new ways to materials and evolve into a different work process
I dug deep and learned the requirements, different cuts, what my limitations were and how to use the materials to my advantage. I decided I would teach myself. I made jewelry inspired by the original materials, using geometric cuts and patterns, creating a new line of jewelry, that to me felt timeless.
These days, I no longer make upcycled jewelry. Instead, I design the jewelry digitally! Once I am happy with it, the design is sent to be laser cut or silver\gold casting. Once back at the studio I give the piece its final touches like soldering, texture where needed, smoothing the surfaces or any other work the piece needs to be complete and perfect.
This new knowledge gives my designs a new glow and originality and its(almost) unlimited options allows me to bring myself and my vision to life and that, to me, is happiness.
MY INSPIRATION:
im usually inspired by geometric shapes from the urban scenery to nature from simple and delicate to the very complex patterns.
MY WORK VALUES AND GOUL:
Always be original and inspire to dare.
my personality comes through the jewelry. I want to create jewelry I can feel proud of. Credibility and reliability towards my customers is one of the most important things!
I love the fact that some returning customers have become my friends.

Hope you will love my work

  • A metal cutting shop

    Jerusalem, Israel

    I have been working with this sterling silver and gold cutting company for only a month. I found them by accident, without any recommendations and they are by far the best cutting company I have worked with. Their work is exact, they do not make mistakes, and everything is always on time. Love them.

  • A metal cutting shop

    Rishon LeZiyyon, Israel

    Intereds is an exellent company since their work is of the best quality, they work fast and their customer service is the best. I use them to cut brass and have been working with them for the last six months. They do photochemical burning and metal cutting. Many jewelrs use them and they are great.

  • A silver coating shop

    Tel Aviv, Israel

    I started working with the Enchanted Orient for 2 micron silver plating. Their prices are the best, and their work is good and that is the reason i started working with them. I found them by chance and they were highly recommended in terms of customer service. I've been working with them two month

Returns and exchange details
All items will be shipped after 3 business days - 2 weeks of processing time (2 weeks is rare but may happen with made to orders items ) of paid order placement via express DHL\UPS (usually arrives within 2-4 days once shipped) which includes insurance and a tracking number. If you would like to upgrade shipping or change shipping method please contact me with your preferences before placing your order and I will set up a custom order.
I understand as a consumer myself that customer satisfaction is important. No one wants to give away their hard earned cash on a purchase that they are not completely happy with. That being said, returns and refunds will be granted on READY TO SHIP items. If you would like to return an item please do so within 14 days of delivery and you will be refunded (less the shipping charges) once the item has been returned to Urban Raven in its original condition and in its original box.

"CUSTOM ORDER" items are NON refundable because they were MADE for you after you placed your order. If you need a different size on a necklace/bracelet length, etc.. , there will be a fee for materials and work time. This is a small one person studio and re-size takes time and resources.

If I've made a mistake with your order (color. size, metal type, wrong item) all fees will be taken care of by me upon return receipt of your item(s) and a replacement will be made and shipped at my expense. In order for me to asses a mistake I MUST receive the item back. I will not just send a new item to compensate for a mistake which has not been confirmed.

for any other problems, you can always contact me and I will approach and try to fix it individually...hopefully will never have to :)

Jewelry care instructions

I use thick and very high-quality plating which gives the jewelry a long-lasting life.

Please follow these recommendations for handling and care:

* Please avoid sea bathing, swimming pools, saunas or steam rooms,

* Please note that in very rare cases sweat may cause plating changes

* Spraying perfume directly on the jewelry is not recommended.

Feel free to contact me if you encounter any problem.
