Intro
The Alice Gottesman Jewelry Design Department at Shenkar was established with an innovative vision and objective: to bridge the gap between art and industry. We believe that design is a language, which our students have to master, from its most basic structures to its most refined conceptual expressions.

Tchinio Almog. Object: Confluence, 2020. Polymer.. Statement: Inspired by Judaica, this collection is based on candlesticks and menorahs - common religious symbols featured in Jewish family traditions and rituals. “The starting point for this project was the importance of tradition and family rituals in my life,” Tchinio explains. The modular menorahs and candlesticks have two states: open and closed. When open, these objects represent ritualistic traditions; when closed, they are stripped of this meaning and transformed into decorative objects - sculptures. Coupled with the objects’ modularity, Tchinio’s choice of polymer material makes these sculptures suitable for children to play with all year-round, rather than just on special occasions..

Levy Avnat. Earrings: Angoisse, 2020. Brass.. Statement: Named for the French word for anxiety, the Angoisse collection is about the connection between anxiety and the body. The designer explains: “it stems from my personal experience of having a phobia that people around me don’t accept or understand.” Levy’s designs are about the physical effects of anxiety and the suffering they bring. Each piece touches or signifies an area of the body affected by anxiety. The effects range from a mild discomfort to a sensation of suffocating.. Levy Avnat

Ben Ami Dana. Bangle: One Line, 2020. Silver, zircons.. Statement: Dana Ben Ami’s graduation project is all about one line. The work process is structured and pre-planned: the raw material is shaped into an outline, which evolves into a jewel. One line; the beginning is always the same; the end - unknown. Bound by strict, clear rules, Dana Ben Ami created a world for her line to inhabit, turning it into a core element of every aspect of her jewelry: the piece itself, the setting, and the way the jewel adheres to the wearer’s body..

Dahan Einav. Bracelet: The Power of Pearls, 2020. Silver, pearls.. Statement: The Power of Pearls is about the clashing aspects of femininity: tenderness versus fierce inner strength. In designing this collection, Dahan seeks to explore the symbolism of the inner space within which the pearl is set. Held within a silver structure and seeming to float, it represents softness. The designer explains: “The iconic pearl we know from classical jewelry symbolizes the correspondence between two images of femininity: the traditional woman, and the modern one, as I see her.” The choice of pink as a main theme emphasizes feminine youthfulness and juxtaposes it with mature womanhood. When the jewel is worn, the pearl becomes more than a traditional gemstone. It transforms into a marker and a focal point, inviting us to reexamine the relationship between jewelry and the body..

Yogev Einav. Earrings: Remeber Me, 2020. Silver, zircons.. Statement: Einav Yogev’s inspiration for her collection came from studying how people cope with the loss of a loved one. Using 3D modeling and traditional jewelry-making, Yogev created a collection of bridal jewelry that engages with the pain and inner crises of the grieving process. “Flowers and nature were the trademarks of my grandmother, who passed away last October. The realization that she wasn’t going to be at my wedding was a hard blow for me,” Yogev added.. Yogev Einav

Salman Gaya. Hand Piece: Re.Main, 2020. 925 silver, acrylic glass, black MC thermochromic pigment.. Statement: Gaya Salman’s collection revolves around the points of contact between the wearer and jewel, between the jewel and other people, and between the wearer and other people. Acting as an interface, the jewel intensifies the meaning of interpersonal contact. Its placement on the body changes a familiar tactile sensation, drawing attention to it and recreating an intimacy we have lost during the COVID-19 pandemic.. Salman Gaya

Barnov Iris. Hand Piece: Paper Walls, 2020. Carved and lacquered paper blocks, rhodium-plated 925 silver.. Statement: Iris Barnov’s collection “Paper Walls” is about feelings and the importance of facing them. Each piece is carved from a paper block and finished with metal elements. While each block is hard and unyielding, much like a wall, the carving process exposes the countless thin layers it is made of. Thus each piece conveys both tenderness and power, vulnerability and strength. The act of carving to expose hidden layers is something we all need to do to cope with our emotions.. Barnov Iris

Katherinne Milkez. Bangle: AVL Tree: the Quest for Balance, 2020. Resin, brass, paper.. Statement: Chaos and imbalance tend to spread rapidly and require an immediate response. To reinstate balance, one must identify the necessary changes. In her collection, Katherinne Milkez engages with the process of embracing and accepting pain, and the desire for balance in life. An AVL tree is a self-balancing binary mathematical structure that follows only one rule: the difference between left and right branches cannot be greater than one. The tree represents change, adaptation, and constant improvement by rotation. It is about humility: the knowledge that you are no better than your peers.. Katherinne Milkez

Aflalo Lidor. Object: Color Flow, 2020. EVA, perforated fabrics, brass, photo-etching.. Statement: Lidor Aflalo’s collection is a study of the material and its boundaries. Beginning with a basic circle, the pleating process creates organic shapes that work with the wearer’s body. The use of metal on the edges follows the same approach. Multiple differently-textured and differently-colored layers are folded together, supported from within by a metal structure.. Aflalo Lidor

Sagi Niv. Object: Comfortouch, 2020. Fabric, acrylic fiber filling.. Statement: The idea for the comfortouch project came to the designer through her job as a mentor at a boarding school for at-risk youth. “I noticed the students’ need to feel safe. Sometimes they found that sense of safety by touching or fiddling with objects. Tactile sensory input is calming and can ease emotional distress,” says Sagi. The pleasant textures of this authentic, comfortable collection invite the wearer to touch the pieces, aiming to provide a sense of warmth and of being held. As we cope with the isolation and uncertainty that came with COVID-19, the need for touch, comfort, ease, and being held becomes even greater.

Kaplan Noah. Ring: Ritmo Simétrico, 2020. Silver 926, zircons.. Statement: A pattern is a repeated sequence of shapes that follows a specific order and rhythm. Inspired by wallpapers used in interior design, Noah Kaplan worked with rotational symmetry and reflections to create a series of repeated textile patterns. Using traditional jewelry-making, 3D printing, and gemstone setting techniques, Kaplan translated the two-dimensional textile designs into three-dimensional metal objects. “When I work with replicated shapes and multiple instances of the same elements, I enter a meditative state. I eliminate the noise from my design until I find a quiet precision,” says Kaplan.. Kaplan Noah

Mattan Ofry. Head Piece: In My Bones, 2020. Brass, silver, spring steel, gold plating, silver plating, pearls.. Statement: This collection is an in-depth study of the scaffolding of life: the skeleton. By deconstructing, abstracting, and reconstructing the complex shapes and structures of bones, the designer examines the concepts of flow, motion, and composition. The result of Ofri’s study is a personal interpretation of the skeletons that inspired him—a visual language that takes more than one glance to fully understand.. Mattan Ofry

Adelman Sigi. Ring: Signs, 2020. Silver.. Statement: We use hand gestures naturally every day, usually without noticing or giving it a second thought. Whether they are universal or culture-specific, hand gestures are a means of silent communication. For some groups, like divers or the hearing-impaired, they are vital. Adelman’s project draws attention to hand gestures through jewelry. Each jewel signifies a gesture and conveys its importance. The jewels were crafted using a sculpting technique in which a human hand is covered with wax. The wax then cools down on the gesturing hand and serves as a mold for metal casting.. Adelman Sigi

Eisenstein Tamara. Arm piece: Unburyable, 2020. Hardened fabric, fabric, 925 silver.. Statement: The Unburyable series is the end-result of Tamara Eisenstein’s study of her identity, which bears the marks of two genocides: the Holocaust and the Armenian genocide. The former is plainly visible, whereas the latter lies buried deep within. Eisenstein’s collection shines a spotlight on the denial of the Armenian genocide by incorporating elements of both cultures into the jewelry. For the Jewish aspect of her work, Eisenstein was inspired by Jewish prayers and burials, namely the modest aesthetic and the white of the prayer shawl and burial furnishings. Conversely, traditional Armenian ornaments celebrate life with rich patterns found in textile and architecture.. Eisenstein Tamara

Wainstein Topaz. Ring: Bended, 2020. Silver, vitreous enamel.. Statement: Topaz Wainstein’s collection began with an intuitive paper-folding technique and then evolved with a transition into metal. The folds and cuts create dark spaces, simultaneously emphasizing and concealing different areas. Wainstein: “When I discovered metalcraft during my studies, I learned about the technique’s meaning—the impact of my personal touch and design decisions.  My decision to emphasize spaces and surfaces by painting them stemmed from a desire to differentiate between layers, uncover new aspects of form, and add a whole new dimension to the design by drawing attention to negative space.”.
