I was born in Jerusalem and have been living in Israel 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 semi- precious stones or precious gems. Many of my items are hammered in the repousse` technique which means that they are 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.

Lately I have discovered the beauty of ancient glass and colored beach-glass. We all have a tendency to refer to beach-glass as a cheap or unworthy substance. But when I pick up the glass and watch it closely I feel that the sea, wind, salt and time have created an object of beauty. I take this piece of glass and it dictates how it should look in my design and whether it should become a pendant, a bracelet or a Necklace. All the glass items are completely hand-crafted, and are one-of-a- kind jewelry because no two pieces of glass are identical in shape or size.

What I mainly keep in my mind is that jewelry should give women a feeling that they look beautiful and special. Sometimes just a row of pearls can do the job, but on other occasions my jewelry adds a desirable effect.
