Intro
The 2021 final projects exhibit is characterized by a wealth of material combinations and research and production methods, some of which are emphatically experimental. This year's projects were accompanied by academic and visual interdisciplinary research centered around a few meta-topics, that led each graduate to their chosen focus and creative process.

Artist list

Shani Axelrad, Hila BarAkiva, Yuval Benbenishti, Tehila Brenner, Guy Grozovski, Esther Gurevich, Stephanie Hamaty, Noa Henen, Hely Huma Yegudayev, Natali Itzhak, Liri Lev, Alma Lion, Merav Meimeron Merhav, Peleg Mercedes Matityahu, Gal Rivlin, Tal Shalom Lagziel, Maya Stein, Meytar Vayman, Shachar Weis, Itay kaufman
The 2021 graduate show at the Shenkar Jewelry Design department features final projects by 22 graduates who have risen to the particular challenges of the last year, challenges which have radically changed the ways we teach and learn, the physical conditions of work and access to means and materials. Most of the crucial senior year was characterized by lockdowns, social distancing constraints and a multiplicity of academic, financial, logistical and personal vicissitudes arising from the Covid19 health crisis. Nevertheless, our graduates have succeeded in developing and bringing to fruition an impressive body of thesis projects that fully exhibit the hallmarks of excellence we have always demanded from our students: curiosity, innovation, depth of material and intellectual investigation, technical mastery and individual expression. We credit this success above all to our students' perseverance and initiative. It is also due to the creativity and alacrity with which our administrative and academic staff succeeded in transforming our course program so that our department could be the first to allow students to resume work in our workshops soon after the first lockdown and in strict compliance with Covid-related health regulations.

The 2021 final projects exhibit is characterized by a wealth of material combinations and research and production methods, some of which are emphatically experimental. This year's projects were accompanied by academic and visual interdisciplinary research centered around a few meta-topics, that led each graduate to their chosen focus and creative process. Two general fields of inquiry interested our students in particular: questions about identity – personal, physical, gender, ethnic, professional, communal, etc. and questions about life on earth in the Anthropocene*, in the broad contexts of biology, ecology and sustainability. Each student channeled their research into their individual creative processes with complete creative freedom and keen attention to design questions arising from the processes themselves.

*Anthropocene – term denoting the current geological age, in which human activity has had a significant impact on the earth.

. Can the designer use industry resources, such as the logic behind the trend forecasting system, and not belong to it? Is it possible to prove that brands can be established; by installing the same ideology individually? Can the designer's inspiration source come mainly from his point of view as a consumer? Can he use existing consumer products and analyze the next trend through them? In assumption, that there is no line between the designer and the consumer. As a Sneaker-head, I used sneakers as a case study. . Shani Axelrad

I’m using laundry softeners caps, made of HDPE. On my silversmith’s table, it becomes equal to gold and silver. “POLY” turns into “PEARL”, trash becomes a gemstone. Hila BarAkiva

. Mechanisms fascinate me: a system of parts that work together in coordination. Beyond giving me the inspiration to wonder and create, I experience a sense of security when making mechanisms’ order. Jewellery design includes endless choices of technologies and materials. The essence of a piece of jewellery is in the connection between its parts. I chose to emphasize technology, not as a hidden layer but as the primary synthesis that represents my interest in mechanisms.. Yuval Benbenishti

In school, I learned Hebrew literature, but I learned Russian literature at home. I am surrounded by Hebrew letters everywhere, but at home, I am surrounded by Russian letters. The Hebrew language represents my connection to my surroundings, but Russian represents my connection to my family. In this project, I express the split in my identity, and the duality of my mind, using letters in both Russian and Hebrew in one piece of jewellery..

. Emotions of color- the connection between primary colors and four of the five fundamental emotions that all humans experience daily: Joy, sadness, fear, anger, and disgust- is the inspiration of my jewellery collection. I explore the various intensities within an “emotion” family, using color psychology and form. The movement of the shape reflects the dynamism of the emotion. By combining both elements, it creates a diverse range of emotional states.. Stephanie Hamaty

Kitsch, its over-decorative elements and superficiality, easy to digest and lacks any intellectual challenge, yet it is consumed in large quantities.

They occur with wisdom, inner reason and aestheticism, which enable a seed to become a flower. As a designer, I’m inspired by the amazing process of photosynthesis, which utilizes sunlight and heat to create movement and colorfulness. This process is expressed by the pieces of jewellery in the collection. The jewellery designed to be placed in strategic locations on the body to emphasize the need for sunlight, and hopefully to make the wearer feel more connected to the sun and nature.. Maya Stein

. The idea for my final project came from a deep interest in the tattoo world. I was attracted to tattoos as a form of beautifying the body, much like jewellery. I was particularly drawn to the linear and minimalistic methods of tattoos that resemble my style of design. During the research for my project,  I found that throughout history, the women of ancient tribes around the world used tattoos as markings of sorts, tribal belonging and magic. With this information in hand, I found a strong and unfulfilled connection between jewellery and tattoos – they serve the same purpose.. Shachar Weis

. My project is a story about the culture and the home I grew up in. It talks about the hierarchy in my family and it puts the women in my life at the forefront of the stage. As a young woman who grew up in the Caucasian-patriarchal culture on one hand, and in a matriarchal home, on the other, I deal with the tension between the two, a tension that is present in my life.The carpet and the gold represent values of culture, status and intergenerational connection. I disassemble the carpet and reassemble, connecting with the gold and giving them a new identity, which expresses both, the gap and the connection between the generations.
