Ever since I remember myself, I remember my grandpa’s shoe shop. And as a kid, I’ve always perceived the shop to be a magical place full of people with the graceful presence of my grandpa and his heartwarming smile, a smile that I’ll never forget as long as I’m alive.
Grandpa Waldman helped me at the beginning of my journey. As soon as I graduated from Bezalel’s Academy for art and design, he set up a place for me at the back of the shop where I designed and made my first jewels.
Nowadays, 30 years later, I’m still in the same place with the same atmosphere, but with a different dream than that of my grandpa’s.
My grandpa’s shoe shop has become my own jewelry design studio. The back of the shop, where I made my first jewels, has become a workshop and a teaching area, where I design and make my own collection of jewelry and teach my students about the various techniques of goldsmith, while the front of the shop has become a display area for my collection. A collection that is inspired by my love to nature and the urban scenery.
I hope that I can convey my passion to you through my original and personal designs.
