Question and Answers
What drew you towards
As a child, I loved
animals and nature so my plan was to be a zoologist or an archeologist.
Even as an adult, I am fascinated by nature, which helped me to be more
aware of the laws and regularities of the natural world. When I was a
child, I also read many books about ancient cultures, such as Greece,
Egypt, and the Mayans, and I was amazed at how all the structures they
built and all their theories reflected these same geometrical shapes
and laws seen in nature. This stayed with me and helped fuel my
interest in studying sacred geometry. This led me to create
jewels that use these very specific geometrical shapes. While it is not
the same careers I aspired toward when I was a child, I am still living
my dream by using the knowledge and wisdom of the ancient cultures to
show how the mathematical laws of nature can create balance and harmony
– and depict those laws in beautiful jewelry designs.
Where does your
inspiration come from to continue conceiving and creating new jewelry
My inspiration to
continue creating comes from a passion to positively impact the lives
of others, which is fueled by my own love of jewelry design and
interest in symbolism and the laws of nature. When I reach new
understanding about these laws, my goal is to share that knowledge with
others through a new design. This is why each piece of jewelry is so
meaningful. The jewelry is a channel or avenue through which I can
share an idea with someone who is far away in a different country, who
speaks a different language, and comes from an entirely different
culture. What I can share with others transcends these and other such
differences and offers something that everyone can enjoy.
Please describe the
“energizing process” that the jewelry goes through.
The special energizing
process that all of my jewelry goes through is very complex and comes
from a long meditative process. It is similar to what Mekubalim
(Kabbalah practitioners) call ‘Kavanot’ (intentions) and
the Hindus call ‘Samadi.’ It is a conscious state that is
created after a very long process of meditation where one has the
ability to influence reality through their thoughts rather than
Your Web site notes
that people contact you after wearing your jewelry and relate how it
has changed their lives. Can you describe any specific
Many people contact me
and convey specific changes experienced in their lives after wearing my
jewelry. One of the most amazing stories involves something
I witnessed myself and that encouraged me to continue
making jewelry. When I first started creating the jewels, I began with
the Merkaba design and gave the pendants to friends and relatives. One
of the people I gave it to was a very nice young man who used to come
to my house a lot and, sadly, was a drug addict. One night, I woke up
and found him sleeping on our sofa, shaking, grinding his teeth and
sweating. The next day, I decided to give him the Merkaba pendant and
explained the shape and what it meant. The change was amazing! Within a
day, he stopped smoking (even cigarettes). In two weeks, he was wearing
white and practicing meditation. Until then, it was practically
impossible to interact with this person due to his heavy drug use.
Everyone thought he was lost, but here he was completely clean of drugs
and had clarity and happiness, meditating up to eight hours a day, just
a few months later. Now, he lives on an organic farm north of Israel
and has a happy, healthy and adorable child. ,
There are also some other great stories of how the jewelry has changed
others’ lives. Every time I make a new design, I usually give a
few related jewels as a gift. I had just made the Genesa Crystal
design with a ruby inside. One day one of my friends’ spouses
called me and asked if she could come over to my workshop, and decided
to give her One. She was so surprised and said she had a dream in
which I called her to come over because I had a gift for her. I also
found out she was suffering from fertility problems. Two months later,
she got pregnant and later gave birth to a boy.
Another story was about a four year old boy who intuitively selected
the Genesa Crystal at a shop. He was a very closed and insecure, but
after he started wearing the pendant, he began to communicate. I found
out about this after his parents called me and asked me to make a new
one for him because the first one was damaged.
A third story was about a guy who called me and sounded very sad. He
told me that he bought my small Merkaba pendant at a shop but lost it
soon after buying it. He said he felt for a long time that he didn't
have any luck and hoped that the pendant would change it. I also
learned that the seller at the shop he bought it from overcharged him.
I invited him to my workshop. Two hours later, he came to the workshop
and I noticed his leg was in a cast. I took out three pendants and
wanted to give him these as a present, but he agreed to only take the
one small Merkaba pendant as a gift and paid for the other two. The
second pendant he bought was the Gordian knot (Torus knot). Three
months later, he called me and excitedly related how his luck had
changed for the better the very same day he visited the workshop.
Of all of the
wonderful forms that you work with in your jewelry design, is there any
one sacred shape that you are most drawn to? Which ones have you found
to be especially powerful?
My favorite model
is the Mobius ring. The Mobius ring demonstrates our illusion of self.
The understanding of the ideas behind the Mobius ring and other sacred
geometry shapes are that these special shapes can boost your abilities.
What inspired you to
become a jewelry designer? Were you always an artist, and how did you
learn how to do what you do?
My main influence came
from nature at large. As a child, I spent a lot of time with my
grandparents, and my grandfather was an agriculture specialist who
worked for the UN. He helped third world countries develop better
agricultural practices to help fight hunger. He had a great
garden next to his house, and I used to spend many hours, observing
different plants, trees, and insects. The designs in nature, as seen
within these animals and plants, inspired me. As I mentioned before,
reading about history and seeing those early royal jewelry designs was
also inspiring. The designs are taken from the geometry and mathematics
of creation itself. Other strong influences have been Judaism, Kabala,
the Emerald tablet of Thoth, Tibetan Buddhism, music and my own
personal penchant to help others.
I have had many guides along the way, including learning jewelry
techniques from my friend, Yaniv Shapira, and from an extraordinary
artist by the name of Michel Ardi.
It seems like you've
drawn your inspiration from many wonderful sources. Many even believe
“do what you love and the money will follow." Do you enjoy doing
work that brings beauty and healing into people's lives?
I know for sure that
one’s personal happiness can be achieved by bringing happiness to
other people's lives. This is why I enjoy what I do so very much. The
positive feedback I receive from people all over the world gives me
great joy and satisfaction, and I am overwhelmed with a feeling of
gratitude to the universe for allowing me to impact so many.
You're based in
Israel, a very special country. What it is it like living in such an
intense, yet beautiful, place? What does it teach you?
For me, Israel is a
mirror of humanity. I feel Israel radiates out onto the whole world and
is meant to teach the world a lesson about the importance of patience.
I use the collective ability of the Israeli people to maintain a level
of peace and harmony as a daily lesson for myself to practice more
patience and work toward a better balance in my own daily life.
