The necklaces are fragile and temporary, much like my country's liquid borders and volatile politics. They recount the process of their coming into being, as well as the story of the place we live in and our identity within it.

Since graduation I enrolled as a MA student at the Bezalel Academy. My work has been shown in a number of international exhibitions such as Galerie Marzee Graduate Show, SMCK ON REEL during Schmuck Munich, the Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow, the Romanian Jewelry Week etc.

My jewelry is sold in galleries and museums in Tel Aviv & abroad. From October 2022 I will be a teaching assistant in jewelry at Shenkar. Most importantly for me, I have deepened my research into sustainable design, experimenting with non-traditional materials & techniques.
