Italy - my inspiration for the Fall 2011 collection

Hi dear friends

A long time since I've shared with you my inspiration...

I had a busy summer, a great vacation in Italy and Germany with my sons.
I came to Italy, Tuscany, from the hot summer days in Israel, to the wonderful autumn - beautiful Tuscany!


Two weeks in Tuscany  and the last one in the Gulf of Amalfi, a spectacular landscape!


The great panorama, blooming, blue sky and sea, smell and food made me very happy. 
All the flowers  were so fresh, and made me creative, (I never managed to plant growth so pretty) lol
I rested, read and traveled, And I just felt like Alice in Wonderland - so different from the Israeli landscape where I live.


Share with you some moments of inspiration ...


Pink flower


Gold leaf


Purple flower


Light green filigree circle


White flower...soon


 Sliced of black Onyx ...soon


The weather was wonderful, we celebrated 31 years of marriage, great!! We did it!! 
It was like a second honeymoon, (the first did not exist,  because we were busy, I was busy with my studies) lol

All photos I shot on vacation, They inspired my new collection.





Enjoy the fall and the beauty of nature

Like any loving mother, I must share with you my sons too:

Amit & Michael

Hi dear friends

So, as I told already, I was in Berlin for the first time in my life, I went to visit my sons who live there now, playing and making music.
Berlin, is unlike any other city I visited in Europe, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and London.
There was something else, an enigma.
Berlin is a young, dynamic and colorful city.
Each house painted a different color, many shops of young designers  and lots of graffiti !!!!!!!
We, my husband and I walked and walked , I could not take my eyes of the colorful people, houses, wonderful gardens - and especially the Graffiti.
 I was fascinated, there's something very dynamic, stimulates creativity, wonderful, so I loved it!
As one who loves color, I just could get inspiration from what I saw.
I made 5 pairs of earrings in my style, inspired by the graffiti.

Gold you can afford...

Gold is the little black dress for woman!

As we know, not all can wear a little black dress, in fact, few women can wear it - I can not, I look like a "small" black potato sack. LOL
 
Even the gold - we love it, but not everyone has the ability to purchase gold jewelry, and not because of age, not because we put on weight, just because the price of gold doubled this year and is a very high price.
Most of us want a gold jewelry, it sparkles, it's luxurious and fashionable.
Women ask me if there are alternatives  - nickel free - and which will not cause allergies.
So I have a wonderful solution for you :

14K Gold filled
...Soon

14K gold filled:

Gold filled is a hollow tube of 14K gold that is filled with another metal. The exterior of the gold filled jewelry is solid karated gold and everything you can see or touch is a solid layer of karated gold.
This tube of karated gold is approximately 100 times thicker than gold plate. It is made by bonding with heat and pressure - with normal wear and tear the karated gold will never tarnish, chip or wear off.
By law this layer of karated gold has to be at least 1/20 of the total weight of the metal portion of the piece of jewelry.
In the USA this process is referred to as ‘gold filled’. In Europe the same process will be called ‘rolled gold’. Both terms are synonymous with each other. 
Many jewelry purchasers outside the jewelry trade mistakenly think 'gold filled' is the same as 'gold-plate' - NO!!!  'Gold filled is a much higher quality product.
I love this great material,  It's cheaper than gold and more expensive than  sterling silver, I am very pleased with it,  and  you  get value for money and quality jewellery.  great !!!

This is my solution for the little "black dress"♥

You can read more here:

You can enjoy some of  my 14k gold filled jewelry:

Soon...

How to Clean Gold Filled Jewelry:
 
Salt water and chlorine in swimming pools will all take their toll on all gold filled jewelry. Be sure to wipe your jewelry carefully with a soft polishing cloth regularly to keep it clean of these elements which oxidizes. 

I hope I answered some of the questions I was asked, if you have another question - I will be happy to answer.

Have a wonderful week

My colorful event

Hi dear friends
On Saturday, I was with my twin sister : Havatzelet hHaramati  in her house, we held an event called in Israel "open house".

              Do not ask me who is who, lol



It happens twice a year, Rosh Hashanah (new year) and Passover, in many places in Israel.,
To exhibit and sell our art.
Like many places in the world, before the holidays, people like to spend money , lol.
Most of the "houses" invite guest artists to introduce their art.
My dear sister, (my best friend) invited me to show my jewelry.
 
 
The weather was wonderful, the garden looked great, everything is blooming, including the Amazing special purple wisteria.


 

 We  both make art.
Her knitted are great, her hand burning  and painted wood are fabulous  and her colors painting on wood are happy.
 
 
Is it coincidence that we both make art?  I Do not know....
 
We grew up in eclectic House, very colorful, our mother was very creative, Which is really not surprising that our works are colorful, optimistic and happy.
My mother's garden:
 

 The event was very happy, lots of people came, this event pretty exhausting, but fun :)
 
The photographer of the event is my wonderful husband, Leon :



You can visit my shop , and enjoy the colors of spring.

-----------------------------------------------------------------


On this occasion   I want to introduce to you - my good friend, who came to visit me on this event, her name is Sari Glassman - she is  a Glass Artist, her beads are colorful and happy, I love them.


I recommend you to visit her shop.

I wish you all the best :)
Happy Passover.

NALAGA'AT (in Hebrew) - Touch Please

A month ago, I went  through one of the more exciting experiences I had.
At the Jaffa port in Tel Aviv, there is a   deaf - blind center called  Nalaga'at.


A group comprised of people who are both deaf and blind and therefore only know to communicate on a one-to-one basis with the help of personal tactile-sign language interpreters.
In the center there are 2 restaurants and a theater.
One restaurant is in the foyer, the other restaurant which is in a separate space is called  BLACKOUT  - A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE  of dinning in the dark escorted by blind waiters.
" When the eyes do not engage in the eating process, one’s ability to taste and smell food sharpens. There is so much to be “seen” when eyes are closed…" says the blind. 
Once in a lifetime experience.
We went  to "Not by Bread Alone" show.
"if there is not hand-shake I do not know you exist"  that was the opening sentence of a deaf-blind actor.
I had tears in my eyes, so simple so true.
Throughout the play, the actors  (some of them) talk about the moments of happiness, their dreams and memories, love and passion.
They play, dance, move, I sat transfixed at the sight of the signs with a touch of each other. I was fascinated, from the way they communicate.
During the show we hear a drum beat used to sign players to change a scene. They feel the vibrations of the drum  and I felt my  heartbeats.
They give us their feelings with a lot of humor, and remove any confusion .
 At the end of the play the audience is invited to go onstage -After several minutes of confusion, we got on stage, and with lots of love, we shook hands.
I left the show, very excited,  with  appreciation to these people, and understanding that their needs are no different from  our needs,  with an  attention to things around me.
I was thrilled from this experience - Thanks with love .



---------------------------------------------------


In my world
I see a colorful blossoms,  I hear the birds chirping and smell the jasmine flower, the spring is here. 
What a great pleasure.




Enjoy the every moment of the Spring  ♥ ♩ ♭ ♫ ♪ ♥

have a wonderful week
