First hot day in a heat wave. Ice cream, anyone? Fresh from my new summer collection :)
I was never good at tying bows (all thumbs), yet today I got a chance for some practice :)


Artistic Voyages*

StudioDjewelry is all about you.
I believe in changing, in renewal and growth, in the natural flow of ideas and emotions – just as a river reinvents itself at every turn. Sometimes it flows slowly, in other times crashes to form a waterfall – only to gather itself again in the next channel.
Our daily journey is like this river, and I would love to accompany you in it.

If you need a piece of jewelry designed to highlight your uniqueness, created especially for you - this is the right place.
In my shop you will find dozens of one of a kind items and limited editions, a large selection of designs in various materials and techniques - all made to enhance and enrich your spirit.
Even if you cannot find the specific item you seek - I'm here to design it for you.

A piece of jewelry is much more than an object - it's an extension of you, a means of expression, an experience, a way of life; It's a part of a story without words - your story.
The story of a necklace or a pair of earrings doesn't end when I finish making it. It continues with your part of our dialogue.
After all, I'm making jewelry for you.

I live and work in central Israel, and can track back my first artistic thoughts to kindergarten, at 5 years old.
One was when my friend, Orit, sketched a figure and drew too many contour lines for the hands. When painting inside she realized making a mistake and fixed it, but I was disappointed. I really liked those extra lines, and thought they were wonderful and imaginative.
Another was being fed up with threading plastic beads, and looking for other options. The teacher's assistant took some olive kernels and showed me how to grind their tips on a stone to make holes. I coated the kernels with gouache paint and created my first original necklace.

I come from a family of craftsmen, designers and artists, so becoming a creative artist seemed natural for me. I was daily exposed to both artistic processes and meticulous handcrafted finishes. However, support for my young talent came from other places, mainly my art teachers at school. When I expressed my wish to learn art in high school, my father replied that it's better to learn a trade, and sent me to learn bookkeeping.
Me, bookkeeping???
Soon he realized his mistake, and became a source of support. Art became an anchor, a built-in part of my life – whether it is painting, crafting or jewelry making. It's a burning fire that never extinguishes.

As a child, I was a mousy little creature, living in a dreamy bubble, gazing out to the world. Everything became a source of inspiration: visions and sounds, scents and colors, textures and shapes. In a way, this child is still here :)
Art has chosen me, and became my way of life. Artistic expressions accompanied every period: jewelry making, crafting, drawing and painting. The main sources for creation are the images and visions that flash in front of my eyes for a fraction of a second, especially when waking from sleep, but most are not absorbed in my memory and I fail to record them all. If only I had a "dream camera" to document them.
The same curiosity that characterized the little girl I used to be is still with me today, and it is tasting the world, touching, feeling, smelling, and listening to its sounds. But most of the work is done by my eyes. Many of the elements in my work come from ceaseless observation – usually unconsciously – of the world around me: from planets and landscapes to people, leaves, crystals or sand grains. These elements find their way to the material as subjects or textures. To a great extent I am a "serial" creator, and use these themes again and again, while applying different translations, interpretations or techniques.

As a young adult I was concerned that art alone cannot provide, so I began learning Architecture. After a while I felt out of place, and longed to work directly with materials, getting my hands dirty. One of my teachers, a sculptor, faced me with an obvious question: what would I like to do when I grow up? Somehow I knew. I always knew. I quit school and began to design jewelry out of leftover modeling cardboard.
StudioD came to life.
More than 30 years later I'm here, sharing a piece of my creative world with you.
During this time I experienced with many materials and techniques, became a silversmith and learned wax modeling.
In the past few years, I'm struggling with ME's (myalgic encephalomyelitis) pain and fatigue. In order to appease my creative genie and continue working, I have begun working with clay, fibers, Metal Clay, artistic wire and digital media – all proved as fantastic materials. Luckily, they broadened my creative options.

From time to time I get help from my daughter, Yael. She assists in inventory management and photo sessions, a fantastic knotted chain untier - but mostly it's her fashion sense that helps me direct my vast inspiration into practical channels. She has a fresh style, that may result in a jewelry line of her own.
Another assistant is my "ETSY HUSBAND" – Yiftah, who takes weekly trips to the post office, shipping your orders.
I love it when my family stands by me :)

Thank you for visiting and accompanying me in this voyage.
