Rings on his fingers and gems on his toes, Ben designs fine jewelry wherever he goes! Ben, a charming and talented young man from Tel Aviv studied for four years in the reputable Shenkar College of Design. He gained a Bachelors Degree in Jewelry Design. This was in order that he could be recognized in his own right do what he had always aspired to do. He wished to design and create beautiful handmade, romantic jewelry.
Even as a young boy Ben had always had the inclination to create. He had the imagination to develop something splendid with any artistic medium. He related more to working with his hands than his academic studies and this fed his creativity. He even collected interesting or unusual gemstones including some semi-precious. He appreciated their appearance, the angles and varying textures of them. Whilst visiting family in Europe, he had many opportunities to wander around vintage and antique markets. There he would focus on the intricate designs of the elegant jewelry pieces of bygone ages.
After leaving the IDF, Ben for a short period worked in Sushi preparation. The appeal was not only the taste but, in the construction and aesthetic of the end product! It was with his sushi hat on, that he made a lucky connection with a tiny jewelry workshop in Tel Aviv. He became fascinated in the creation of the items which they produced. In time, they invited him to make a ring on his own, which he accepted with delight. So, with the first ring in hand (or on his finger) Ben’s dream became a reality.
Ben now designs, develops and executes beautiful handcrafted pieces. Rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. He uses the very finest of materials. Precious stones such as diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires combined with gold in all its colors, platinum and silver. Primarily his designs have a luxurious visual presence with a delicate romanticism.
His creative inspiration predominately comes from nature although he infuses the edginess of architecture too. He his influenced by the grain in wood, the ridges of shells and textures of something as simple as nuts. Inspired too by the softer feminine lines of the botanical world, such as flowers, petals, leaf formations.
Ben is now an established independent designer of fine jewelry. He has happy, satisfied clients from all over the world. Many have purchased both engagement and wedding rings from his jewelry ranges.
