I have always been engaged in art. I am a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. during my studies I took a basic Course in gold and silversmithing.

 

In the past I touched upon textile design, pottery, and I worked at an industrial design studio, which designed

soft toys, for "Tiny Love" Developmental Toys.

 

When I first came upon glass bead jewelry, the connection was immediate and total, by the richness of colors and the translucency, and the great beauty achieved by combining them. 

 

I participated in a short workshop (of several hours) on Technique, and also perfection my skill from books, and from the Internet. And especially during what I call “A lot

of lamp hours”.

 

In the course of my work I allow myself the freedom of

trial and error, which always leads me to new discoveries.

For me, glass is both, my raw material and inspiration.

The process of creation becomes an exploration into the thrilling qualities of the material and into its amazing possibilities.

 

My jewelry is testimony to or perpetuation of a magical discovery in technique, form and color. The excitement

is great, each time anew.

 

I melt the glass in a high-temperature flame and by turning and modelling the liquid material on a mandrel I create the bead, and then carefully and gradually cool it.

 

I mainly create hollow beads. I love the fact that they are big and light, which provides me with room for expression and creativity.
