Life has sweetness to it and a beauty and a power that I wanted to celebrate. (Valerie Harper)
I was born in a tiny village in the German-French border on the banks of the Moselle River. When I was 13, my family made an exceptionally sudden transition to the city of Eilat on Israel’s southern border, on the shores of the Red Sea. In this unfamiliar new environment, it was nature, the sea and my passion for running that became the elements that shaped my identity, one that never felt comfortable with convention.
It was apparently the difficulty of adopting a new language that drew me to the language of art. I had the fortune to foster and develop this language in my studies at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, followed by the dozens of years I engaged in design and new media. Seven years ago I had the dubious honor of falling ill, which together with the attendant difficulties gave me an opportunity to recalculate my route and decide to return to art in a new form, jewelry design.
After several years of study including Shenkar College of Engineering and Designs, as a jewelry designer and gold- and silversmith, I wish to bring to the world jewelry that represents strength and natural feminine beauty, while maintaining a design simplicity characterized by flowing lines and lightness.
