Wednesday Wonderful! Featuring "Artisan Look"

 I'm very excited to bring you these wonderful artists today. Truly talented and unique our Wednesday feature is...


Artisan Look

This is a story about close friendship and a love of art and design. It begins when we met at the age of 14 in the arts high school where we both studied sculpture, ceramics, drawing and design.
At the age of 21 we packed our bags and traveled together through Europe. We started in colorful Amsterdam, where we used to sell paintings in the streets. Passers by who saw the charming drawings were touched and bought them. After a while we moved to Spain, where in a majestic valley we built a ceramics studio in nature. We built the primitive stoves from wood and from an old washing machine. We created our first jewels from local stones that we found in nature. People loved our work, and we started selling to art galleries in Europe. Today, we spend all the time we can at our studio and enjoy every minute of it.
We dedicate ourselves to our creativity and skills. We have developed techniques that resonate powerfully through our contemporary jewelry designs, with the craftsmanship and detail of old Yemeni and Middle Eastern cultures, creating a distinct look for each piece of jewelry. By working with sterling silver, gold and gemstones we create an unconventional mixture of contemporary and ethnic designs. The use of intricate filigree work in our designs demonstrates the impact of different cultures of our work.

Our designs the Oded & Ilan Collection were displayed for many years in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. We are presenting in the most important jewelry shows in the world and sell in Australia, the Middle East, Japan, the USA, Canada and elsewhere. In order to learn more about us you may look at the press link.
Two years ago we opened a marketing office in Montréal, Canada with our third partner Ev. We love the idea of selling directly to art lovers and people that like our work from all over the world.
