Conquering the metal by handcrafting. All handmade oriental, vintage and classic style jewelry

My name is Malka. I grew up in a kibbutz, in Israel, near the Lake of Galilee a long time ago… I always wanted to be a jeweler but, at that time, in the kibbutz, this was not considered as "productive" work… so I became a special education teacher for students with disabilities and special needs. I was always a very creative teacher but never gave up my desire for jewelry.
After many years of being a teacher, I decided to make my dream come true. For a few years, I studied jewelry, precious metals, and semi-precious stones and after a lot of practice in crafting and engraving techniques, I became a jeweler and gradually developed my own distinct style and design.

In the vast universe of jewelry and jewelry design, I focus on hand-engraving using the art of wax carving (a technique otherwise known as lost wax). This is a fascinating way of making silver and gold jewels by carving jewelry out of wax, then creating a mold to make a durable version in solid gold or silver.

Carving wax is ideal for creating complex, multifaceted rounded forms, fluid lines, and curvatures, it is capable of being highly detailed, with very fine and meticulous elements, allowing me to leave my distinct signature in every piece I make.

My line of work is mostly vintage style with oriental and Middle-Eastern decorations, it is characterized by smooth lines, fine details, and ornament like elements. I am romantic; nature, flora and colors are my languages. In my work wildflowers, roses, grapes, and leaves are the expressions of nature and the heart shapes for romance and love…as for my seamless, rounded, smooth-edged rings and earrings - it's the colorful stones that decorate and bring them to life.

Every jewel I make is sculptured from a single piece of wax, much like a sculpture that starts from a single piece of stone or marble and is, therefore, a bespoke piece of art. No prefabricated elements, bending or welding are involved, I handcraft every component in each jewel including the bezels for setting the stones. This feature of my work allows me to create thick dense bezel edges to highlight the metal, gold or silver, and to accommodate the center stone shape and size with a distinctive crown, in rings and even more so in earrings.

My work is intended for the art lover and fine connoisseurs of sculptured jewelry, those who appreciate a genuine all handmade piece from start to finish. If you like smooth, fluid lines or highly detailed jewelry you've come to the right place.

I hope you will find your special jewelry in my shop, I am here to assist with any question you may have.
Blessings,
Malka
