About

My name is Irith Mashiah. I'm a Metalwork jewelry designer, live and create in Israel.

I grew up in a town by the Sea s of Galilee . When I was 20 I moved to the city of Haifa in Israel, by the Mediterranean where I have been living ever since.

I studied Jewelry Design at the External Studies department at the Wizo Academy of Design in Haifa and the Ort Technology Centre in Tel-Aviv and then continued privately with some of the best tutors in Israel.

I design and create jewelry in Silver and Gold combined with gemstones . I feel I must emphasize that, inspite of the various cultural influences on my creativity, All my designs are my own and I am the sole worker in my studio.

Sometimes I love to use Sterling Silver with Gold and ancient Roman glass or Sea glass. I love to design jewelry combined with authentic ancient coins. Many of my items are hammered in the repousse' technique (hammered on top of a bowl of pitch) which gives them a three-dimensional or a sculptural effect. Some of my designs are symmetrical, such as geometrical shapes, hearts, butterflies or leaves, but I also like using asymmetrical shapes.

Most of my items are ONE OF A KIND jewelry items. Each of all my items is slightly different from the one you will find in the photograph, as all of them are handcrafted individually by me.

I believe that jewelry should give a woman a feeling that she is beautiful and feminine. Sometimes just a row of pearls can do the job, but on other occasions my jewelry adds a desirable effect.

I am the ONLY worker in my shop. After handcrafting a piece of jewelry, I pack it, and go to the post office to send it away to my customers. I do so because this is what makes me happy with my work.
